MS Quiz Bowl at Tuscumbia
January 28, 2013Hallsville High School
from Coach Rhonda Haes
Saturday morning at 6:45 13 students boarded the bus for our first visit to the Tuscumbia MS Quiz Bowl Tournament. After a long and brain draining day of 7 competitions and over 500 questions, we returned with a few wins under our belt. Teams were divided with a mixture of both 7th and 8th graders.
Team captains for the day were Sarah Hedrick and Drew Pickett. These two individuals did an amazing job of keeping track of their team members and competition rooms. They made sure someone who was not playing kept score and tallied individual points. A big thank you for their leadership that day.
Drew's team consisted of Clarence Morris, Ryan Blumer, Drayton Bates, Robyn Frederic, Christopher McMichael and Chandler Green. They played teams from Washington, Holden, Osage, Boonville, St James and Tuscumbia. High scorers for this team were Drew, Ryan, Clarence and Drayton. Though this team did not win a match, they worked well in supporting and were 30 points (3 questions correct) for half of their games.
Sarah's team included Brandon Hodges, Cole Hanvey, Alex Mikel, Logan Durk, and Tylor Phillippe. They played teams from Washington, Boonville, Tuscumbia, Holden, South Callaway and Higbee. High scorers for this team were Brandon Hodges, Cole Hanvey Logan Durk and Sarah Hedrick. They won three of their games against Holden, South Callaway and Washington, and one of the losses was by a 1/2 point power bonus question. Cole played the Captain's chair most of the day.
When you have a chance, congratulate them on a good showing. We are off this week, but resume on Feb 7th against South Callaway.
