JH Quiz Bowl Tournament Team Captures the Silver

Participants

The East Dubuque JH Quiz Bowl Tournament Team competed at the West Dubuque Quiz Bowl Tournament on Saturday, April 6th.  This year, East Dubuque was moved up into the second bracket of the competition after sweeping Division A taking first and second place in 2018.  Coaches Stierman and LaPage took 8 students, four of each grade, comprising a 7th grade team and an 8th grade team.  The 8th grade took home the silver, thrashing a majority of their opponents.  The 7th grade stood firm and had several quality victories, one of which nearly stunned the 8th grade team, who mounted a rally to come back for the victory in the battle between the two grades.  Great work to all participants!  Way to close our your JH Quiz Bowl Career 8th grade students!  You not only made East Dubuque proud today, but also the State of Illinois, being the only team from Illinois in the competition.
