Duffy, Stillman win DECA District event

Juniors Connor Duffy and Brandon Stillman will lead a four-person contingent to the state Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) meet in Lake Geneva in March after a successful showing at districts over the weekend. Duffy and Stillman teamed up to take first place in the Sports and Entertainment Marketing Team event thanks to medaling in the cluster exam and role plays involving selling and human resource management. Sophomore Jack Hitzeman took second place in the Principles of Business Administration event while fellow sophomore Jacob Anschutz punched his own ticket to state in the Principles of Hospitality and Tourism Series. Gibraltar DECA advisor Mary Witteborg says the state berths are impressive because of the size of their categories and the turnaround they have to compete.

Stillman, Duffy, Hitzeman, and Anschutz could clinch a berth to the international competition in Orlando in April if they are successful at the state meet in March.
