The Quiz Bowl team placed first with a score of 1,115 at the Lansing Invitational on Monday, Nov. 3 against 12 schools. The team lost one round, but continued to score high, in order to win its third tournament of the season.

Senior Jack Earlenbaugh said it was a challenge to get to the buzzer faster than the team’s opponent.

“I think there were several instances where we could have done better in our response times, but I think we had a good meet,” Earlenbaugh said.

The team is hoping to continue its winning streak of 3-0 in its next meet at Olathe Northwest.

“It went pretty well. [We] met a lot of teams, thirteen rounds is double what we usually have in a normal tournament,” junior Jordan Wootton said. “It was pretty easy for a varsity meet. Hopefully [we will] keep the streak alive.”

Earlenbaugh attributed the team’s success to the balance of the six players.

“The meet overall went well, I was really satisfied with the balance of our team members. I thought they performed really well,” Earlenbaugh said. “Each one of them had a very high scoring record.”
