Team Jake consisting of a Junior class team, Andrew Slack, Braxton Geary, Jake Anderson, and Cortez Nelson, battled their way to the championship win against another all Junior fierce competitor team “24601”; members including Savannah Simmons, Abi Maccabee, Adam Eaton, and Stanton Woods. Clearly, Springville High’s Junior class is full of quick witted, well-versed scholars.
Mrs. Lanell Rabner, SHS Media Specialist, posed questions to a myriad of teams all week judged by teachers Ms. Marie Condie and Mr. Dan Frewin. Quiz Bowl was televised school-wide via SHS Live and co-hosted by teachers Mr. Christian Cragun and Mr. Trent Mikesell. Quiz Bowl Championship round was on Friday, March 25.

A huge thank you to Mr. Braden Boss, video teacher, who professionally produced the bowl on multiple split screens and computers to seamlessly present the event live streaming on YouTube all week for the student body, faculty, and staff to enjoy.
