Middle School Quiz Bowl Teams Compete in Seward
The Crete Middle School Quiz Bowl teams attended the annual ESU #6 meet in Seward on April 4, 2018. The meet was held at the Seward Community Center. There were sixteen teams competing. Each team had three rounds in the morning. The teams answered questions about math, science, geography, literature, and miscellaneous trivia. The competition is set up in a game show format, in which the first person to “buzz in” answers the question. The team with the correct answer is then given a bonus question for a chance to earn additional points.
After the morning competition, the teams were seeded according to total points, as well as wins and losses, for the final rounds. The brackets were set up for a single elimination tournament in the afternoon.
The Crete B team, consisting of Cale B, Will E, Trevor R, Eli F, and Gus B, finished third in the tournament.
