HS Academic Teams Triumph at Regional and State Tourneys

Fayette’s academic teams put their marks on the RESA Regional and State Academic bowls.

An allusive third place victory was all that kept the county’s varsity and junior varsity teams from sweeping the entire regional meet at Griffin RESA. Varsity winners were McIntosh High, first place; Starr’s Mill High (Team A), second place; and Starr’s Mill High (Team B), fourth place. At the JV level, Starr’s Mill took first, McIntosh second, and Whitewater High fourth.

All of the teams qualified to advance to the state competition in Flowery Branch February 12. This time Starr’s Mill (Team A) beat McIntosh in the semi-final round and came back to overtake Flowery Branch High in the finals, clinching the state title.

“The kids are pretty excited about being state champs,” says academic team coach Nancy Close.
McIntosh finished in third place.

Whitewater High’s JV team made it to the quarterfinals before losing to Calhoun High, a team they had beaten earlier.
