Academic Team

The Whitmire Academic Team members for 2012-2013 are:  Amy Andrews, Bradley Burleson, Shimia Hunter, Erin Jeter, Trey Martin, Austin Prather, Caroline Raines, and Brianna Swain. 


An Academic Tournament consists of a family of games of questions and answers on all topics of human knowledge, commonly played in high school and college. The game is played with a lockout buzzer system between some number of teams, most commonly two teams of four or five players each. A moderator reads questions to the teams, whose players endeavor to buzz in first with the correct answer, scoring points for their team.  Academic Tournaments are generally played at schools around the state.  The WCS Academic Team practices weekly during the school year and participates in a couple of tournaments during the year.
