Dunwoody High School Academic TeamFinishes 4th at State Championship!
Congratulations to the DHS Academic Team on finishing 4th in Georgia AAAAA!
Led by captain Thomas Dellaert, the team of senior Jacky Zhu, juniors Varsha Narendra and Zack Bloomberg, and sophomore Ryan Polk earned the #3 seed in the state before falling to last year's state champ Bainbridge. Captain Thomas Dellaert led our scoring with an astounding 32% average (which is kind of like batting .320 in baseball, except that in quiz bowl, you're competing with other players on every pitch).
The team also worked well together to achieve a 68.8% bonus question average, which should move us up in the next national rankings.
The team will now turn its attention to prepping for the national championship tournament which is being held in Chicago at the end of May.
