LCCHS Academic Team - 2014
LCCHS ACADEMIC TEAM
The Lamar County Comprehensive High School Academic Team is more-or-less an extension of the normal class education through a series of studying, after-school practice rounds and competitions wtih other schools across the state. Our competitions throughout the year can be broken up into a few categories:
- Griffin RESA--These competitions take place in high schools of neighboring counties (and occasionally, our own), leading up to a state championship at Flowery Branch High School (for schools that place in the top 3 of their respective RESA regions)
- GATA Tournaments--These are singular tournaments that begin and end in one high school (typically, either Bleckley High School or Chatahoochee High School), and are available for either Junior Varsity (JV, 9-10th graders) or Varsity (11-12th graders) players
- Brookwood Invitational--This competition takes place at Brookwood High School, and is available for competitors from both the JV and Varsity levels. Teams from other states are also invited to this event, and LCCHS goes to Brookwood every year
- High-Q--This is a televised series of competitions that can be viewed by the public on Channel 2 at 12:30 p.m. every day. However, it is a matter of luck that LCCHS is selected: we've been chosen to compete in High Q about 6 times in every 10 attempts
Our Academic Team Coach is Mr. Turner. He can be contacted outside of school at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Practice days for Academic Team have typically been on Tuesday and Thursday in the past, but they are to be defined for the 2012-2013 school year. We also meet on Club Rotation 1 on Hybrid Wednesdays; see the school calendar for more information on Hybrid days.
Captains for the JV and Varsity teams have yet to be picked.
A schedule for the competitions this year will be distributed to Academic Team members at a later date.
