Blackmon Road Middle School's Academic Bowl Team recently competed in the statewide Professional Association of Georgia Educators Foundation's 30th Anniversary PAGE Academic Bowl Competition.
The team -- the only Muscogee County team to advance to the State level -- emerged in 7th place in the state, placing them in the top five percent of Academic Bowl teams in the state. The Academic Bowl competition is similar to a high level academic form of Jeopardy without having to answer in the form of a question.
Members of the team are pictured above. On the front row, from left, are Coach Nancy Butterworth, Priyanka Parikh, Team Captain Vineeth Harish, Emma Slavens and Gabriel Mendez. On the back row are Sophie Murtey, Sebastian Wilson, Kunal Mohapatra, Anish Upadhayay and Haritha Sigili.
