Lawrence "Sungus" Sung (Class of 2021) 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.

Individual career

He is a two-time history bee regional finalist. At 2018 Bronco Bowl, he helped Arcadia C to an 8-2 record in the JV division and hoisted that 1st place trophy. At the 2018 National History Bowl championship, he carried Arcadia's JV team to finish 56th in the country. At the 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.

Personal

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.
