Spartan Quiz Bowl competes at nationals

Congratulations to the SPA Quiz Bowl team, which competed at Small School Nationals in the Open Division this past weekend (April 22-24) in Rosemount, Illinois.

The Spartan team, which includes Colin Will '23, Asa Zirps '23, Andrew Evens '25, Bridget Keel '24, Rohan Kharbanda '25, and Dominik Polley '25, started the weekend strong on Saturday, finishing the first day with eight winning rounds and only two losses. Colin and Asa put up exceptional individual results, finishing 18th and 24th respectfully in overall individual points.

The team's strong performance earned them a place in the four-round playoffs on Sunday. The Spartans won their first and third rounds but were eliminated in the fourth round, finishing 11th out of 55 teams overall with a 10-4 record. 

Quiz Bowl coach Dr. Kate Lockwood says the team has a lot to be proud of: "Not only did the team have a great record, but they also worked well together and displayed excellent sportsmanship all weekend."

Congratulations, Spartans!
