DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- Wiregrass high school students competed in a head to head in an academic competition.

Eleven schools were represented in Wallace Community College's Scholar Bowl Friday.

Students rushed to the buzzer to answer trivia questions in subjects ranging from math to fine arts.

Providence Christian School took home the 1st place trophy, Houston took Academy 2nd, and Dothan High placed third. Geneva County's Preston Langford won the academic scholarship.
