Bella Vista High School is the winner of the Sacramento County Academic Decathlon for the second consecutive year.

Winners were announced Wednesday night at a dinner at California State University, Sacramento, hosted by the Sacramento County Office of Education.

The San Juan Unified School District team advances to the state finals, to be held March 14 to 17 in Sacramento.

Second place went to Folsom High, which won the Academic Decathlon in 2010 and 2011.

Bella Vista edged Folsom by one point on Saturday to win the Super Quiz.

The Super Quiz was the culmination of a day of individual and group tests that determined the winner.

Pleasant Grove High placed third in the decathlon, Del Campo High finished fourth and Mira Loma High fifth.
