LA PLATA, Md. (October 16, 2010)—North Point High School’s It’s Academic team won first place with a score of 535 in a regional competition held Sept. 25 against Suitland and Paul VI high schools. The event will air on WRC TV (NBC 4) Oct. 30.

The three-member team consists of seniors Erin Chapman, who serves as captain, and Nick Teleky, and sophomore Gaston Lopez. Team coaches are Peggy DeVeny, a literacy instructional assistant, and Deen Stewart, a foreign language teacher at North Point.

North Point’s team won second place in the Charles County competition held Dec. 2009, which earned them a chance to compete in a televised competition this school year. The team will also have the opportunity to compete in a playoff match, which will be announced at a later date.
