Quiz Bowl wins one match in tournament


The quiz bowl team encountered a bit of a challenge at its tournament hosted by Ladue on April 1. Even though it was held on April Fool’s day, this competition was no joking matter.

Despite the team’s collective knowledge in history, science and culture (according to assistant coach Emily Brasher), the team only won its first round, ending with a record of 1-8 for the day. “Ideally, we’d like to see improvement in that number, but I’m proud of our team’s effort,” Brasher said.

Brasher stated that with more practice, the team is looking to improve on its team unity. Morgan Allen (10) added that the team needs to study more poetry, a prevalent topic addressed at the last competition. Drilling the team’s weaker topics such as literature and art is also a priority, according to teammate Justin Shotton (10).

The team continues to look to the future, putting the loss behind it. “I’m proud of our team and am looking forward to growing the program next year,” Brasher said.

The quiz bowl team hopes to earn a better record when it hosts its next tournament at OHS
on Saturday, April 8.
