Brain Brawl on Their Way to Phoenix Arizona to Defend The Navy National Title
The Brain Brawl Team competed at the Area-12 Championship 24 March, at Middleburg High School in Middleburg Florida. The team would have had to qualify either 1st or 2nd at the competition in order to advance to the Navy Nationals. That really didn't matter for North Cobb-Harrison Team. Because they are defending champions, the team had already secured a spot at Navy Nationals. However, that didn't stop them from placing 2nd at Area-12. In addition, Cadet Bowman wow'd the judges during Brawl Stars, an individual competition, winning the match convincingly. Bravo Zulu team and good luck in Arizona.
