Academic Team Hosts Successful Tournament

Montgomery Blair High School beat out TJ Sci-Tech in the finals of the 20th Governor's School Academic Tournament (GSAC XX). The GSAC tournament is run by the students of the MLWGS Academic Team (BoB Squad), who also write all of the questions.

Thirty-two teams from Virginia, Maryland, DC, Kentucky, and North Carolina competed. Seung-Hwan Kim ('13, Henrico) was the Tournament Director, and Saumil Bandyopadhyay ('13, Henrico) was the Question Editor.

In addition to being a fundraiser for the MLWGS Academic Team, writing and running GSAC is an invaluable educational experience for students, according to Coach John Barnes.

Special thanks to tournament sponsors Luck Companies for their very generous support!
