Albany -- Dougherty County's top Middle Schoolers compete to see who has the smartest team in town.

The Academic Bowl pitted four middle schools in team competition, to see who was the smartest. The sixth, seventh, and eighth graders answered questions from math to sports trivia.

 Many Mothers and Fathers came to cheer on their school team.

The questions were challenging, and the competition keen. Coordinator Bill Orr said "These kids have been practicing since August in some cases, or September, for this one opportunity to represent Dougherty County schools."

Merry Acres Middle School, in the red, won this year's Academic Bowl with an undefeated record. They claim the "Christine Blaylock Award", honoring the late Board of Education member.

 They now advance to regional competition next in Moultrie. If they keep winning, they could advance to the State Championships in Atlanta in February.
