Coach Glen Harrison said the team fought back after a disappointing round yesterday, and “played it conservatively” to make it back into the championship round category! “They just strengthened as a team with each round. Having students from different schools come together like this has been incredible to watch!” said Coach Harrison. Congratulations to all the Academic Team Coaches, and team members Sean Brown, Freeport High School; Malcolm Griffith, Freeport High School; Jordan Nichols, South Walton High School; Evan Cowie, Walton High School; Kier Teves, Walton High School; and Griffon Murphy, Walton High School.  

Special thanks to all the academic team coaches for all their hard work and dedication! 

The Division 3 competitors are: Walton, Hendry, Suwannee, De Soto, Hardee and Wakulla Counties.

Way to Represent, Walton County Academic Team!!
