Mexico High School academic team starts the year strong

Posted

The Mexico High School (MHS) academic team ended 2021 with a bang, finishing eighth at the MOQBA Fall Championship tournament. Their success at the tournament was rewarded with a bid to the 2022 Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence (PACE) National Scholastic Championship, which features the best teams in the nation.  

Freshman Camden Williams was among the tournament's top scorers and was the highest-ranked underclassman for the tournament.

Not satisfied with their seventh consecutive national bid, the MHS academic team started 2022 strong with an 8-1 afternoon Saturday, Jan. 8 at South Shelby, which was good for second place. Through the first seven rounds, Mexico had the highest points per game total by more than 50 points. Though they suffered a tough defeat by a talented Moberly team, the team remains motivated for a rematch during the NCMC Conference Tournament in March.

The A-team was led by seniors Sydney Moeller, who was the fourth top scorer in the tournament; Zack McWilliams, team captain; along with Camden Williams, the second top scorer in the tournament; Christian Frederickson; and Jamison Jeffries.

Liam Hoyle led the b-team to a 4-5 record on the day, placing as the 10th top scorer in the tournament.

Mexico's next tournament is on Jan. 22 at Wentzville. Mexico will host their annual Bulldog Regional Interscholastic Competition on Saturday, March 12.
