ANKENY, Iowa (February 5, 2019) - Southview Middle School hosted Ankeny’s first city-wide academic quiz bowl tournament.  The competition consisted of eight middle school teams in grades 6-7 and 17 teams at the elementary level in grades 3-5.


In the middle school division, a team from Parkview placed first and a team from Prairie Ridge took second.  At the elementary level, a team from Ashland Ridge won first place and a team from Crocker scored second place. 


“It was a wonderful opportunity to introduce quiz bowl to students who have never participated in an academic event like this before,” said Nathan Coombes, event organizer and coach of AHS and Southview quiz bowl teams.


The tournament comprised 20 toss-up questions about the following subjects: math, geography, government, sports, spelling, science, literature and English.
