Lee Middle School’s quiz bowl team claimed first place at the recent Georgia State Junior Beta Club Convention in Savannah.

Members of the team – which included eighth-graders Austin Fisher, Anya Govednik, Ethan Chitnis and Timothy Autry – were among 53 Lee Middle students who traveled from Coweta County to the annual convention.

Students also competed in individual and group events that included academic content, engineering and visual arts at the event, which was held Dec. 5-6 at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center.

The Lee Middle School quiz bowl team has been invited to compete at the National Junior Beta Club Convention, which will be held in Fort Worth, Texas, in June 2020.
