The Junior High Quiz Bowl team experienced their first Quiz Bowl competition of the 20-21 school year in mid November. The Twin Valley Conference Quiz competition was hosted by Silver Lake on Thursday, November 19th. Eight teams competed and the event had a different look due to Covid-19. Spectators were not allowed but the event was broadcasted on Striv.
Captain, Katelyn Strampher, and team members Casey Conway, Jeremy Sharp, Paxton Sorensen, Landon Duester, Lanham Skrdlant made a fine showing on the day. Seventh grader, Lanham successfully answered three questions while Katelyn controlled the buzzer with two. Other team members with quick and correct “buzz-ins” were Casey, Jeremy, and Paxton.
Mrs. Heuertz, the team’s sponsor, feels good about this team prospects on the year. Members show confidence and aren’t timid about buzzing in. She is expecting great things from the Silver Lake Junior High Quiz Bowl team and is sure you will be reading more throughout the year about their success.
