Quiz Bowl takes first place at ASU competition

By Brett A. Mejia ’13

After what moderators said was a very long, but fulfilling 13 hour day Saturday, Jan. 19 the Brophy Quiz Bowl team took first place in a competition at ASU, competing against 15 teams from around the state.

The Quiz Bowl team is comprised of 22 students ranging from freshmen to seniors.

The team is led by Brophy science teachers Ms. Cheryl Lenox and Mr. Patrick Kolb.

The first place win came down to winning a tiebreaker against Desert Vista who had finished with the same loss and win record as Brophy.

Since Brophy accumulated more points during the tournament they were able to win the tiebreaker.
