Academic champs

The Commerce High School academic team won the 2020 North Georgia History Bowl at Calhoun High School. The team includes seniors Jacob Whitley, John Chang, Maggie Jiang and Madison Waldrep. It was 8-0 in the tournament, defeating Rockmart, Calhoun, Southwest Macon, Gordon Central, Atlanta Classical Academy, Christian Heritage, Cartersville and Oak Mountain Academy. Coach Robin Richards said the win “may well be the first tournament championship by Commerce in almost 30 years.” The team will prepare for the NAQT Small School National Championship Tournament in Chicago the last weekend of April. It will hold its second annual trivia night fundraiser to help with expenses.
