The Quiz Bowl team participated in the state competition at Blue Valley on Saturday, Feb. 11, winning two rounds and losing five.

Even though [they] did not place in the top four, sponsor Mary Beth Mattingly thinks that the team did fine.

“I think we played well. On most of the rounds we didn’t have gigantic losses,” Mattingly said. “We essentially had the answer right, but then we would give too much information.”

Senior Zach Zarnstorff has similar thoughts.

“I think it went OK. State competition is hard and there were a lot of good teams there,” Zarnstorff said. “We missed going to finals by one win.”

Mattingly said that the different set-up of the competition was surprising.

“The thing that threw us off was the format of the rounds,” Mattingly said. “Usually, it is round after round after round, but in this competition there would be a round and then you sat around and wait for the next round.”
