The Pasadena Decathlon team is heading to Nationals, this time without the lawsuit. Last year, Dobie and Lubbock High School turned to the courts to settle which team should go to the national contest after a dispute over scoring discrepancies in the state contest. The Texas Supreme Court eventually ruled that the courts had no jurisdiction in such matters, giving Lubbock the go-ahead to represent Texas.
On Sunday, it was Dobie who took first place at the state competition in Garland. Now the Dobie team is going to Erie, Pennsylvania for the National Decathlon Tournament next month.
