On February 25, 2010, Curriculum and Instructional Services hosted the annual Pasco Academic Challenge held at Pasco Hernando Community College West Campus. All twelve of the District’s high schools were in attendance for the full-day event, whose questions were centered on the theme of famous Broadway musicals. Teams were randomly selected to compete against each other in three preliminary rounds with the four top-scoring teams meeting in the championship round. In the end, Land O’ Lakes High School garnered the honor of representing the District School Board of Pasco County at the statewide Commissioner’s Academic Challenge to be held in Orlando. J.W. Mitchell High School took the second place position with River Ridge High School placing third. Wesley Chapel High School earned an honorable mention. Congratulations to all who participated and best of luck to the Land O’ Lakes High School team of Victoria Dahl, Shaina Maldonado, Victoria Greiner, Brittney Warrick, Dawson Friedland, Christina Reinhardt, and their faculty sponsor and team coach Douglas O’Brien.
