TSA Wins State Championship
Parkview Technology Student Association (TSA) has won it's 5th State Championship at the 2019 GA TSA State Championship in Athens, GA. Accumulating 228 points, Parkview brought home the 1st place outstanding chapter with 5 first place trophies, 7 second place trophies, 6 third place trophies and, additionally 15 top ten placements. Mrs. Calvert received the Tommy Pitchford Inspirational Teacher Award and has completed her three year term on the GA TSA Board of Directors. The following are the ranking of the competitive events and members.
This Saturday, the PHS Math Team, represented by Jiwon Chang, Toby Nguyen, Boyu Zhou and Lawrence Zhou placed 2nd at the GSMST Math Tournament. Lawrence's individual score tied for first place, but he ended third overall after the tie-breakers were analyzed.
The Parkview Rifle team has received little fan fare over the last 5 months. However, last night they reached an important milestone by scoring a hard fought victory against Riverside Military Academy. With the win, the rifle team advances in the state playoffs. I would like to give a special shout out to Junior Annaliese Mayo and Freshman Madison Castleberry. Anna is currently the number 1 ranked shooter in the area and will advance to the state championships as an individual. Madison scored a perfect 100 in the prone position firing; firing 10 consecutive shots all in the bullseye. This is an amazing feat in and of itself but even more astounding when you consider she is only a freshman and this is her first year shooting competitively. I ask that if you have or know these two students, you congratulate them and the team for their accomplishments.
Next weekend we compete against the 5 best teams in the area at Lumpkin High School to determine who advances to the state sectionals.
