On Dec. 5, Blair won second place in the biannual Knowledge Master Open (KMO). The Blazers scored 1773 points, 3 points behind the winning school, Novi, Michigan's Detroit Catholic Central High School.
This Saturday, the Blair Academic Team will compete against National Cathedral and South Lakes in "It's Academic," NBC's high school quiz show.
