Academic Challenge Team Places Fourth at Tournament
On Saturday, February 26, the Harrison Central Academic Challenge team traveled to Eastern Gateway Community College in Steubenville. Schools from all over the valley joined them, where eventually our Academic Challenge Team placed fourth overall. Out of the four rounds they played, they won two and lost two. The first round consisted of East Liverpool challenging our Harrison Academic Challenge team, and we won by one point. Although that victory did not last to the next round with us losing to Edison. Later, during the ending rounds of the tournament, we followed the same pattern with us beating Indian Creek then losing to St. Clairsville.
