GREER– The Greer High Academic team or the ¨Buzzing Brainiacs¨ meet every Friday morning to practice for competition. They have a total of twelve members which make up a Varsity and Junior Varsity team.

¨I like doing academic team because everyone in there is so much like me. I get along very well with everyone and I am able to compete in other things besides athletics.¨ said Junior Edwin Hammonds literature expert and President

During competitions, students compete against other academic teams from all over the region. The goal is to retain as much knowledge as possible in their field. Each student specializes in one of many categories. Such as literature, science, mythology, pop culture, and sports just to name a few. When a question is asked the team who answers the quickest with accuracy wins the point. The Vice President this season is Junior Basia Scott.

When asked about the importance of having an Academic Team Quiz Bowl Coach and history teacher John Morrison said ¨It’s a chance for students to show their academic prowess and compete against the most intelligent people around the southeast.¨

Greer High Schools Varsity Academic Team finished 21st out of 38 at the Southeastern district tour. Competing among them were five national finalists teams. Their next Quiz Bowl will be held February sixteenth at Southside High School. Admission is free so come show your Buzzing Brainiacs some support.
