Marina High School has won its first Orange County Academic Decathlon, beating 75 teams. Friday's win means the high school will represent Orange County in the state tournament next month in Modesto. The Marina team began studying for the event in June. Students took a summer course and set up outside study sessions. After school began in the fall, students met for one period a day and spent hundreds of hours in the afternoon and evening preparing for the competition.

Re "In the running, as herself," Sept. 19 Transgender teen Cassidy Lynn Campbell would get my vote for homecoming queen at Marina High School. Not only is she beautiful, she is smart, brave and true to herself. Kudos to Marina High and her parents for allowing her to be who she is.

Re: "UC Applications: Tough Time for the Deadline-Challenged" (Dec. 1): How ironic that the six Huntington Beach Union High School District campuses are among the 10 in Orange County that shunned the UC guaranteed admission offer to students in the top 4% of their class. The experience of children in our family has been that students are encouraged to attend junior colleges. College counseling is not available. Marina High School has a solid offering of advanced placement courses, yet the percentage is extremely low of students going on to four-year institutions.
