October 14, 2002|by LAURA ERNDE

A team from Boonsboro High School is scheduled to appear this morning on "It's Academic."

The match will air at 11 a.m. on WJZ-TV, Channel 13, unless it is pre-empted by breaking news, Sophie Altman, a spokeswoman for the television show, said.

The team consisted of captain Nathan Leifer, a senior; Ben Cline, a senior; and Andrew Shifler, a junior.

The team traveled to Washington on Sept. 15 to compete against teams from Glen Burnie (Md.) High School and Wilde Lake High School in Columbia, Md.

"We were competitive," said Coach Steve Lemonakis, an English teacher at Boonsboro High School.

"It's Academic" is sponsored by Giant Food and Comcast, which over the years has awarded more than $2 million in scholarships to schools that compete in the program.
