Team Coach: Darin Osborne
Club 1 Rotation room 303
Practice Tuesday & Thursday 2:30-3:45 pm


The Lamar County High School Academic Team is an extension of the classroom through a series of studying, after-school practice rounds and competitions with 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
