The BIC Junior High Quiz Bowl team competed in the State Tournament at University of Arkansas Cossatot Community College on February 23rd.  The team finished with third place in the Regional Tournament, which qualified them for the state competition. The team earned the seventh seed after performing well during morning competition. They then beat the second seeded team to move on to the final four.  

Coach Kylie Crosskno indicated her happiness with the team, saying, “I always get nervous before any tournament.  I know that the students are prepared, but sometimes it just comes down to luck of the questions.  After finding out that we were fourth place in the state, I was extremely excited, proud, and to be honest a little shocked.  The teams that make it to state are the best of the best after beating out numerous other teams in their regional tournaments, and it was a great feeling knowing that we placed that high statewide.”

While the season has come to an end for these quiz bowl students, the competitors look forward to competing and improving on their excellent season next year.
