The Saint Stephen’s Academic Team is once again the champion of the annual Manatee County academic challenge, going undefeated and winning the overall title by 132 points over the second-place team. The Falcons completed their sweep on Tuesday night, Dec. 4, by hosting and capturing the last of the three competitions in the fall/winter season. It was the fifth straight championship for the Falcons. Two Saint Stephen’s students finished among the top six individual scorers for the season. Senior Sidney Knowles (No. 1) and junior Kassandra Haakman (No. 3), along with two students each from Southeast and Braden River high schools, will represent Manatee County at the state Commissioners’ Academic Challenge in April in Orlando.
