Though they lost round one, the Quiz Bowl team of seniors Cole Clay, Alex Reeves and CJ Hopkins, juniors Andrew Hecht and Joe Gunter and sophomore Jack Earlenbaugh took first in the 5A regionals on Thursday, Jan. 30, qualifying them for state.

“We were doing awful in regular play at the start,” Earlenbaugh said. “Then we got into finals and destroyed.”

The win came as a shock to some of the team members.

“[The best part] was winning it out of nowhere,” Earlenbaugh said.

According to Earlenbaugh, the competition was not only competitive, but also very enjoyable.

“I love the competition, it’s so fun,” Earlenbaugh said. “I have to say it was awesome.”

State is Saturday, Feb. 9 in Newtown.
