Mr. Drako Arc
The school district wasted a lot of money buying that yacht. So now we have to combine your Scholastic and Athletic Decathlons into one event, which shouldn't be a problem if you're great at all sports and all academics.

Kyle Drako

"Athledecamathalon" is the 14th episode in the first season of Milo Murphy's Law.

Milo and his class get unpleasantly surprised when they hear from Mr. Drako that the school have to combine the scholastic and athletic decathlons in in one single decathlon due to budget costs. To make matters worse, this was told to them last-minute, while the team of their rivaling school was told months beforehand.


Milo and his comrades are surprised to learn that their school's academic and athletic decathlons have been combined into one single event, named the Athledecamathalon, by Kyle Drako, who also oversees the event. To their chagrin, the mixed group of athletes and academics find that the opposing team has been aware of the event for three months, leaving them fully prepared. As a result, they quickly take the lead in the competition, leaving Milo's team in the dust. Meanwhile, Martin and Brigette Murphy come to the school to drop off some items for Milo (including his body armor) and end up searching for a Soccer trophy Martin won in his youth.

Thanks to Murphy's Law the field on which they are competing is left a ruin, though Milo is confident that this actually improves the group's chances due to his experience with such setbacks. The two teams then face the final event, making their way over the field to various computer terminals in order to answer questions. Little by little the teams are worn down until only Milo and the other team's captain remains, with Milo triumphing due to Melissa's knowledge of trivia. Meanwhile, Martin inadvertently causes some damage to the school while on his search for the trophy, and he and Brigette leave before more is caused, stopping to watch Milo's victory.
