Honaker is a very small school in far southwestern Virginia. They are known as the most decorated & storied Academic Team in the region, winning 9 VHSL Region D championships as well as 4 Region 1A West/Super Region 1CD championships, whilst also advancing to the VHSL Scholastic Bowl state tournament 17 times in the format's 22 year history.

The team has won 4 VHSL State Runner-Up titles (2010, 2012, 2013, 2018) and 4 VHSL 1A State Championships (2014, 2016, 2017, 2019), leading all current Class 1 teams in both achievements.

Non-Scholastic Bowl Performances

The 2007-2008 season was the first year for Honaker in non-VHSL formats since 1997, when it placed a local format known as "PACE" (no known relation to PACE).

Due to the geographic isolation of Honaker and Southwest Virginia in general (ex. reaching an interstate from Honaker High School takes approx. 1 hour), their participation in weekend invitationals is typically limited to the areas of Virginia's New River Valley, western North Carolina, Northeast Tennessee, and northwestern South Carolina.

To put it in perspective, far-Southwest Virginia teams have a shorter drive to five or more state capitals (at a minimum: Nashville, Frankfort, Raleigh, Columbia, and Charleston) than to their own capital of Richmond.

Because of the region's difficult access and isolation from the state's main quiz bowl events, the Southwest Virginia Academic Team Alliance, also known as SWATA, was founded in part by Honaker and several other schools in the region in 2016. Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, SWATA put together a series of four annual quiz bowl invitationals that were open to far-Southwest Virginia schools only. Honaker hosted SWATA's inaugural event, the Redbud Invitational, and followed in 2017 with the first Steele Memorial Invitational.

Other Notes

  • From 2007 through 2014, Honaker had an undefeated streak of 102 games at the district/conference level, including both regular season and tournaments. A record that still stands (after the 2018 season) is Honaker's 12-year undefeated streak at the district/conference tournament in order to qualify for Regionals. Honaker has never failed to make a VHSL regional tournament appearance in Scholastic Bowl's history, and has only failed to qualify for VHSL States 5 times since 1998.
  • Former Honaker coach Alex Zachwieja was a member of the VHSL Scholastic Bowl Advisory Committee (2009-2011), and finished his coaching career with over 400 victories along with an eight-year undefeated streak in the Black Diamond District/Crooked Road Conference. Teams under his tutelage also won six straight Regional-level titles. Zachwieja retired from Honaker High School after the 2014 state championship season, bringing an end to his 20-year tenure as head coach of Honaker's academic competition teams (1995-2014).
  • Honaker's 2014 Captain and top scorer in team history, Jacob Mitchell, once held the NAQT Record for most Points Per Tossup Heard in one game (on an IIS set or harder), with a stat line of 13-4-1 for 230 PPTUH.
  • After a year of minimal activity in 2015 and with no remaining players from the 2014 state championship season, the team was turned over to one of Zachwieja's former players, Charlie Perkins in 2016. Under his guidance, the team has returned to prominence once again, winning two consecutive 1A State Championships-- the first VHSL team in Russell County to ever do so in sports or academic competitions. Perhaps more astounding is that neither team featured a player with more than 2 years of Scholastic Bowl experience; the 2016 team, in fact, had 6 of its 7 players in their rookie season.
  • After their back-to-back VHSL 1A State Championships in 2016 & 2017, Honaker returned to the VHSL State Tournament in 2018 and earned Runner-Up honors despite having a Senior-less lineup and only one returning 'starter' from its consecutive title run-- Sophomore Aidan Cook-- who would be named to the State All-Star Team as the #4 scorer across VHSL Classes 1-6.
  • Honaker made its debut on the national stage at the 2017 NAQT Small School National Championship Tournament after its 20th year of playing VHSL and 10th year playing NAQT format. Despite only having 3 of their 7 players in attendance, they qualified for the playoffs and finished tied for 41st place, while also finishing within the top 20 Very Small Schools. Honaker's Captain, Caleb Perkins, earned the distinction of 19th individual scorer in the tournament, as well as the 13th-best scorer from a very small school-- the first Top 20 individual finish at the national level for any Virginian west of the New River Valley.
