2016 Quiz Bowl Winners

Submitted by carey.white on

Congratulations to quiz bowl team “c8h11no3” which is “Norepinephrine” (a chemical composition similar to adrenaline, used to treat life-threatening conditions such as shock and low blood pressure).  It’s a good thing this top winning team (Maxwell Riche, Brian Udall, Brady Dolan, and Elizabeth Setzer) didn’t need the actual Norepinephrine since their brains were naturally working overtime to beat their opponents, “The Therapists” -- Jared Buler, Brett Bodily, Simon Laraway, and Morgan Allen.  Final score 140-120.

With only 11 questions remaining, the teams were tied 110-110.  It was an adrenaline-moving final 20 minutes; both teams showed their knowledge prowess as they sparred back and forth until the very end, making it an exciting quiz bowl final round.

A big thanks goes to Mrs. Lanell Rabner for organizing and moderating the event, Mr. Christian Cragun and Mr. Trent Mikesell for their humorous MC commentary, Mr. Mike Johnson for preparing the slides, Ms. Leslie Christensen for keying the questions, senior Chloe Wilson for designing the T-shirts, Mr. Braden Boss for the audio visual presentation; and, of course, our fabulous judges Ms. Marie Condie and Mr. Dan Frewin.
