Quiz Bowl team dominates at first match of the season

On Monday, January 14, the St. Patrick Quiz Bowl Team travelled to Biloxi High School for its first match of the season. With six schools present, St. Patrick played three rounds against St. Stanislaus’ “A” team, Our Lady Academy, and St. Stanislaus’ “B” team. The team won all three rounds, qualifying for lightning rounds.

St. Patrick defeated Pass Christian High School in lighting rounds to win the match. St. Patrick last won the area’s Quiz Bowl Championship in 2016. In 2017 and 2018, the team won second place. This year, the team is hoping to reclaim its title as the area’s Quiz Bowl champions. The victory on Monday night is a great indicator of how the rest of the season will go.

Quiz Bowl Team Captain Stephen Azar said, “I was very pleased for our performance Monday night. It was a great start for the season.”
