A security breach was not enough to derail Granada Hills Charter High School, a perennial favorite, from winning this year’s California Academic Decathlon in Sacramento in results announced Sunday.

The problem ended up invalidating the Super Quiz, which is the highest-profile and only public portion of the annual competition. In the quiz, teams of students submit answers to questions that are tallied in real time before enthusiastic onlookers.

After the Super Quiz was completed Saturday, a team coach alerted organizers that competitors could have seen the questions in advance, said Cliff Ker, the decathlon coordinator for the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The state of Alaska had used the same version of Super Quiz questions several weeks ago — and that event was recorded and posted on YouTube.
