Blanchester Middle School Students Top Quiz Bowl

The double-elimination tournament, sponsored by the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center’s gifted services team, challenged students with a range of academic questions in a quick recall format.  

Eighteen teams participated in the tournament that consisted of a series of 34 sixteen-minute rounds moderated in four competition rooms by Jill Binau, Curt Bradshaw, Regina Gerber, and Shelly Wellman.  Working behind the scenes providing additional support in the competition rooms with scoring and running the electronic buzzer systems were Ashley Cagle, Karen Carter, Joyce Kelly, Wendy Goodman, and Brittany Carpenter. 

Moderators posed questions that challenged students in the areas of art, literature, history, mathematics, social studies, science, sports, geography, computer science, and music. 

The quiz bowl activity presents an opportunity for students to develop pride in their academic knowledge, sportsmanship, and school representation.  The competitions also encourage students to consider participating on their respective academic teams once in high school. 

The first place, 7th Grade Champion Team was from Blanchester Middle School and included members, Maddie Coyle, Sam Earl, and Adam Frump. 

The second place, 7th Grade Runner-Up Team, also from Blanchester Middle School, included members, Bryan Bandow, Billy Knapp, Rhianna Mueller, and Annie Trovillo.
