Congratulations to quiz bowl team “Flaming Toothbrushes” including students Zach Foster, Melody Anderson, Mark Payne, Cory Clay (and alternate team member Kaiden Exon) who cleaned their opponents plaque, “M3M3, aka Meme Machine” with a “flossingly” brilliant score of 110-75.  Meme Machine team consisted of Ben Creer, Grant Gardner, Luke Gleave, and Joel Emmett (and alternate team member Taren Stewart).

It was a fast-paced final 20 minutes; both teams showed their knowledge prowess as they sparred back and forth until the very end, making it an exciting quiz bowl final round.

After the final student round, the winning teacher team, the “Chocolaty Claire's and the French Pastries,” including Mr. Justin Snell, Mrs. Claire Taylor, Mr. Brad Northcutt, and Mr. Darwin Deming (and alternate Mr. Jacob Douglas) took on the Flaming Toothbrushes and won with a sudden death sports question answered correctly by Coach Snell. 

A big thanks goes to Mrs. Lanell Rabner for moderating the event, Jill Thackeray for the bracketing, recruiting of teams, and running the buzzer system, Lisa Simmons and Leslie Christensen with administrative responsibilities, Mr. Christian Cragun and Mr. Trent Mikesell for their humorous MC commentary, Mr. Braden Boss for the audio visual presentation, and, of course, our fabulous judges including Ms. Marie Condie, Mr. Wes Morgan, Mr. Darwin Deming, and Mr. Mike Johnson.

It was a very fun and exciting week!
