What is Academic Derby?

  • Academic Derby is a quiz bowl style academic competition team with initial tryouts, after school practices, and competitions during the school day against other middle schools in Onslow County.  Students interested in trying out should see Ms. Whaley or Ms. Wayne for more information.  

How can I participate?

  • Any Trexler Middle School student who is interested in being on the Academic Derby team can take a test with our team coaches during the Fall semester. Students selected to be on the team will attend practices and games throughout the year.

  • Academic Derby is taped at the Onslow County Studio located at Southwest High School.  Shows are then produced and broadcast on local cable channels.  They run in the order in which they are played, elementary schools that play first game air first, second are second, middle school, then high schools in the fall line up.  Shows are streamed as they are played live at the time they are in session.
