FAYETTE 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. Southeastern high schools compete in this annual event, which is associated with National Academic Quiz Tournaments.
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.
