Academic Tournament: 2020 in Review
Urbana High School students won this year’s countywide Academic Tournament for the fourth time in school history.
Walkersville High finished second. Brunswick High placed third.
All matches were held virtually for the first time in the tournament’s 40 history.
Retired Walkersville High School teacher Eric Reickel served as master of ceremonies, reading questions at the virtual event. Frederick High School’s social studies department chair Beth Strakonsky coordinated this year’s tournament, with assistance from STV Inc. engineering specialist Kelly Misner, who competed on the Walkersville High Academic Tournament team while in high school.
Don't forget to support the Frederick County teams competing in the "It's Academic" tournament Saturday mornings at 10 AM on WJZ-TV.
