The East Webster High School Quiz Bowl Team competed in the Brain Bowl at the University of Mississippi on Nov. 2.
The tournament consisted of five matches, two of which East Webster won. A match is won by answering more questions correctly than the opponent. This is East Webster’s first year in five years to have a quiz bowl team.
“The students performed very well, especially considering it was their first time to compete,” said Lavelle McAlpin, one of the team’s sponsors.
“It was a great learning experience,” stated senior member Meagan Dean. Junior John Taylor Champion agreed: “We are thankful for Mr. McAlpin and Mrs. Jewell encouraging us to participate.”
The Quiz Bowl Team continues to work hard to prepare for future competitions. The Quiz Bowl team is sponsored by Jordan Earnest, Dawn Gaskin, Mandy Jewell and Lavelle McAlpin.
