For the past 22 years, students from around the state have gathered to compete in the Pennsylvania State Academic Competition -- and for the past four years, the winners have hailed from schools in Chester County.

A team of four students from Conestoga High School in Berwyn snagged the top honor this year; participants must answer questions on world history, literature, American history, science, current events and "potpurri" -- anything and everything. This year's winning question hinged on participants' knowledge of sports: the Conestoga team correctly identified the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Boston Americans as the two teams who competed in the first  World Series in 1903.
