Mr. Jay Thompson

The LHS academic team competed on Feb. 1 in the Sullivan Academic Tournament. As a team, Licking finished second in their consolation pool, with four wins against five losses. Isaac Haden finished as the fourth best individual medalist (out of approximately 216 players comprising 36 teams), which is quite an accomplishment! The Orchard Farm A team destroyed Licking, but the other losses were close until the end. Overall, it was a strong performance for our Wildcats against the stiffest competition we’ve faced in my five years as their coach. I am proud of their performance and accomplishments.
Four players compete at a time and teams have substitution opportunities. In the end, all team members contribute after a day of nine rounds. The academic team is comprised of the following members: Isaac Haden, Captain, senior; Hannah Tillery, senior; Nissa Buchanan, sophomore; Dale Roberts, sophomore; Landen Hock, sophomore; Spencer Grover, junior and Autumn Grover, sophomore. Spencer Grover and Autumn Grover were unable to attend the Sullivan competition.
