Chris Bianco, a junior at Bishop Hendricken High School, won a gold medal in the Interview competition at the Academic Decathlon National Championships in Minneapolis, Minn. last month. Bianco is the first Hendricken student to win a gold medal at the national level of the competition. As a whole, the team from Hendricken placed 28 out of the 53 competing teams, improving their score from the state championships by 2,700 points. Hendricken won the state competition in March by a narrow margin over the Johnston High team. Both teams were sent to the nationals by the state organization.
