Fayette Public Schools 02 300FAYETTE COUNTY, Ky. (10/29/13) - The junior varsity academic team from Paul Laurence Dunbar High School captured the JV championship in the JV/Novice Jag Bowl on Oct. 26 in Athens, Ga.

The winning team included sophomores Adil Yusuf, Zainab Kahloon, Shaoyi Sheng and Joanna Slusarewicz and freshman Ananth Miller-Murthy. They played 10 rounds against other schools –including fourth-ranked Dorman High from Spartanburg, S.C., and No. 12 Chattahoochee High School near Atlanta – and won all but one game during the day.

Dunbar is the first Kentucky team to ever top this tournament, according to Coach Susan Magedanz.
