Arrowhead had a total of thirteen students among the hundred thirty-nine students from fifteen schools that took part in the event.  Four of the top ten and seven of the top twenty students in the competition were members of the Arrowhead team.  Only ten students from southeastern Wisconsin are allowed to take part in the national exam with no more than two from any one school.  Arrowhead High School has placed two students in this competition in all but one year since 1992.  Congratulations to the team, their teachers and to Parker and Kevin who have qualified to take the National Level of the exam at Carroll University.
