Quiz Bowl team wins SPVA PDF Print E-mail


The Perkins County High School Quiz Bowl team won the SPVA Conference Quiz Bowl Tournament on Tuesday, April 1, in Sutherland.
The squad won a round-robin tournament with six of the seven conference teams in attendance. PCHS went 5-0 on the day, winning the title. The Plainsmen defeated Sutherland, North Platte St. Patrick’s, Kimball, Hershey and Chase County.
All of the team members competed in at least one of the matches.  All members contributed by answering toss-up questions or by adding to the team discussion and decisions on bonus questions.  
“Today’s win was a true, team effort,” Deanne Bishop, Quiz Bowl coach, said.
The district title was decided on Tuesday, April 15, at Sutherland.  
If PCHS finishes as one of the top two teams at districts the team will earn a trip to the all-class, state Quiz Bowl tournament to be held in Holdrege later in April.
