Congratulations to the SPA quiz bowl team who competed at the Tri-WIZARD tournament at Shattuck-St.Mary's earlier this month and qualified for the 2018 NAQT High School National Championship Tournament. Peter Blanchfield '18 and Tom Patterson '18 competed in the upperclassman division and Katherine Goodman '21 and Noel Abraham '21 competed in the underclassman division. Both teams made the playoffs and the upperclassmen tied for 5th place. Individually, Blanchfield finished first in points in the upperclassman division and in the underclassman division, Goodman finished ninth and Abraham finished tenth. The Quiz Bowl National Championship will be held in Atlanta, Georgia over Memorial Day weekend.
Additionally, last weekend Blanchfield, Patterson, Max Moen '19, and Goodman played in the RAT-RACE tournament in Rosemount and finished ninth.
Congratulations to SPA Quiz Bowl on an exceptional season, thus far -- Go Spartans!
