Academic Team

The Florida State University Invitational Tournament - We competed against Eastside High School, which is an IB school from Gainesville, the final score was PHS 395 - Eastside High 90.

The Northwest Florida Academic Tournament - we successfully defended our title with a final score of PHS 330 - Ft Walton Bch 130 - Choctaw 120.

The University of Florida Regional Tournament - The Varsity team lost a close semi-final match to Lincoln High School.

The Escambia County Tournament hosted my Cox Communications - In the first round, we defeated Tate High School 415 - 160 and Woodham High School 385 - 45. In the second round we defeated Washington High School 265 - 0. In the final match we defeated Tate High School 315 to 75.

Your PHS Academic team was invited to attend an intercollegiate tournament this past weekend. Out of three invited high schools we were the only ones to attend. In the final preliminary round, a two man team of FSU grad students (with our own Spencer Leeper and Josh Chen sitting in) needed a tie breaker question to beat our varsity. When it was all over for the weekend we walked out with six wins and only four losses, our only losses were to teams of grad students. In the playoffs we managed to defeat Georgia Tech for the second time to take the novice division trophy.

The matches will air on Cox Channel 2 Fridays and Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. and Channel 19 on Sundays between 1:30-3:00 p.m. (air times seem to float on this one)
