Quiz bowl is a quiz game that tests players on a wide variety of academic subjects. H-LP is proud to have its own quiz bowl team coached by Mrs. Anderson!

Every year the quiz bowl team attends contests at Spirit Lake, Orange City, Boyden-Hull, and a War Eagle conference meet at Hawarden. However, they have only had one meet so far this year at Bishop Garrigan.There are nine members this year, who include James Harmon, Keegan Carpenter, Bryce Perkins, Brittney Allard, Jada SanSoussi, Trevor Gunderson, Jonathan Cozart, Adbulla Elbuytari, and Marianne Nebelsick.  These students take turns attending different events at different schools either on the varsity or JV team.

The varsity team went 3-1 at their first meet. However, they played each game with three teams instead of the usual two, so they got first three times and second once. They made the top 16 out of 48 teams. The varsity team was James, Trevor, and Keegan.

Senior James Harmon said, “I really enjoy winning against really good teams and having fun while competing.”

Good luck to James during his last year of quiz bowl, and good luck to the rest of the quiz bowl team at their next meet on November 12 and the meets afterwards!
