Quiz Bowl's Last Ride for 2012
By AMY KOCH
Last Tuesday, the Quiz Bowl had its last meet. It was parents against teachers against students.
The six rounds of questions frustrated and annoyed the contestants, but with each correct answer, they let out a whoop of excitement.
After the rounds were over, the final scores were tallied and announced. All the teams waited in anticipation as first place was announced.
“The Misfits!” one of our parent groups let out cheers as they accepted the “Nobel East Prize.” Our other two parent groups and one former-student group took second, third and fourth place and the teacher group took fifth. In sixth place, our own Quiz Bowl kids cheered sarcastically and high-fived each other on their 26 points.
Jennifer Nguyen said, “It was very exciting and mind-blowing at the same time! I’ll definitely miss the EMS Quiz Bowl next year.”
Overall, the night was a blast and all the contestants are excited to come back next year for another shot at the “Nobel East Prize!”
