Bayside Academy earns honors at UM Brain Battle

Posted

Bayside Academy earned second place honors during the University of Mobile Brain Battle Tournament that took place on Sept. 15 on the university campus. Over 70 students from eight Baldwin and Mobile high schools competed in the event. McGill-Toolen students won the trophy at the end of the tournament.
Students were divided into 12 teams for the scholars' bowl tournament. The UM Brain Battle is a qualifier for NAQT's High School National Championship Tournament.
Gulf Shores High School also competed.
UM faculty served as moderators for the event, while UM students volunteered to serve as scorekeepers and timekeepers.
"All the student volunteers were invaluable to this tournament's success. Our UM students truly embody service in Christ and in our community," Amy Burdette, tournament coordinator, said.
Chick-fil-A joined as a corporate sponsor.
"They generously provided 150 chicken biscuits to our competing scholars, coaches and volunteers," Burdette said. "We are so blessed that our tournament is becoming more successful every semester."
