ATLANTA -- An Atlanta teenager is in the national spotlight this week appearing on Jeopardy's Teen Tournament.

Nilai Sarda, 13, competed against hundreds of others to snag the spot. He spent two years trying to get on the show.

"There's this great website called J! Archive and it's basically an archive of every single Jeopardy question, or at least most of them, that has ever been aired. I just went through the teen tournament... a couple of times. It's a great resource," Nilai said.

On Monday, Jeopardy Clue Crew member, Sarah Whitcomb, stopped by the school to play Classroom Jeopardy with Nilai and his classmates in English class.

"It's a great thrill for Westminster," said Scoot Dimon, Assistant Headmaster. "The whole school has been following it. It's been in the announcements. It's been on the webpage. It's been on Facebook. So, Nilai is the man. What can you say?"

Tuesday night will mark Nilai's third appearance in the Teen Tournament. He finished with the most money on each of the shows Friday and Monday.

Jeopardy airs on 11Alive at 7:30 p.m. weeknights.
