Lawrence "Sungus" Sung (Class of 2021) (aka "Daddy Sungus" or "Lord Sungus the Magnificent") is a player and public relations officer for Arcadia High School's quizbowl team who unfortunately is currently inactive. He also used to compete for Arcadia's History Bowl team.
He is a two-time history bee regional finalist. At the 2018 National History Bowl championship, he put the team on his back and carried Arcadia's JV team to finish 56th in the country. At the absolute peak of his quizbowl career, he managed 5 powers, 8 tens, and 9 negs, on the 2018-2019 iteration of HFT. But when Arcadia Quizbowl needed him most, he vanished.
The reason for Lord Sungus' hiatus from the QB world has never been definitively determined; however, it has been speculated that Lawrence personally felt that he "wasn't getting enough out of quizbowl" for college apps and thus decided to quit.
Lawrence is an avid member of the Arcadia Unified School District Digital Communications Internship Program (DCI), the Arcadia Bridge the Divide club, Arcadia's Speech and Debate team, the Arcadia Taiwanese Appreciation Club, Arcadia High School's Peer Mentors program, and he considers himself to be a proud patriot.
Lawrence is also the subject of a novella, written by Santa Monica player Josh Xu, entitled "The Epic of Sungus". Regarded as a classic example of Kafkaesque literature, "The Epic of Sungus" has quickly become quite famous in the SoCal QB community. However, as of this writing it is still awaiting approval for publication.
