BOONSBORO - Smaller high schools typically have a harder time surviving in the "It's Academic" competition on WJZ-TV in Baltimore, but the team from Boonsboro High School had done its homework.
Since the beginning of the year, Will Keller, Tyler Newman and Alton Temple had been going to school early about three times a week to review old videos of the show and practice answering questions.
"Two weeks before the competition, we were in there every morning," said Keller.
The time paid off when the three seniors defeated Hereford High School from Baltimore County and River Hill High School from Howard County in the quiz show on Sept. 20.
