“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.
