Pinecrest Academy’s Varsity Academic Team won the 2008 GISA (Georgia Independent School Association) Annual Academic Bowl Tournament held at Wesleyan on Saturday, March 29th.  The Pinecrest team won the championship in the "Varsity" category, which included thirteen of the area’s top schools.  The team included Roberto Ocon, Michael Williams, Rob Herd, and Kate Foster. This is a big accomplishment and honor for Pinecrest, as this is their first year competing in the event. 

The Academic Bowl is a competition of questions and answers on all topics of human knowledge and is commonly played in high school and college. The game is played with a lockout buzzer system usually with two teams of four players each.  The topics include literature; history; science and math; social sciences; fine arts; geography; religion, mythology, and philosophy.

Among the schools that competed were St. Pius, Blessed Trinity, Lovett, Wesleyan, Westminster, Mt. Paran, Riverside Military Academy, and Holy Spirit.
