Academic Team

SponsorsMrs. Clarissa Brown and Mrs. Lucinda Bateman


The Ransom Middle School Academic Team conducts regular practices to review questions over the entire spectrum of the middle school curriculum, plus current events, sports, and popular culture. Then, the team represents our school at competitive, interscholastic regional tournaments.




The following members of the Ransom Academic Team traveled to Collegiate High School in Niceville, Florida for the 11th Annual Academic Tournament, this past Saturday (October 21, 2017).
Team A
Abby Gryskiewicz
Emmalei Miller
Carter Pitts
Keegan Streit
Team B
Ian DeLay
Lilli DeLay
Jordan Jernigan
Taylor Walker
Team C
Kyler Boutwell
Connor Ryan
Aidan Webster
They played five morning rounds, where our players learned much from competing in a "real" tournament - a first for many new players on this year's team. All three teams scored against high schoolers on high school questions, and Team A and C made the playoffs! We didn't win, but it was great training, helping us prepare as we look ahead to middle school level tournaments (which are qualifiers for Nationals in Dallas) in November and January. Tate also sent teams - and our A teams played each other!
