The OHS Academic Quiz Bowl team won districts on Saturday, April 14, with a record of 5-0.

Four schools came together at OHS to compete against one another for the title of first place, but in the end, OHS was victorious. The last time the OHS quiz bowl team won districts was in 2016.

“This is the first time winning districts since I have become head coach,” Ms. Kristin Pierce said. “They all did awesome and everyone contributed.”

The entire team participated in the competition, and a few students even earned individual awards. Conrad Bucholtz (12) placed first, Connor Jones (11) fourth, Meredith Bayer (11) sixth, and Justin Shotton (11) seventh.

The team will go to sectionals on April 24 at OHS.

“I am very excited to go to sectionals considering we have not made it this far in two years,” Bayer said.

Jones added, “This is very exciting for all of us. (It’s) such a big accomplishment and we are ready to move on.”
