Shout out to our Academic Quiz Bowl teams who have now participated in two virtual tournaments and have come out as winners. We are so proud of our teams!
The first event was the Texas Quiz Bowl Alliance (TQBA) Middle School Kickoff Tournament on October 17 where our E Team won the Elementary Division against fourteen teams. Four of our ten teams made it to the playoffs. In the Middle School Division, AOS entered four teams in a field of thirty-four teams. Our A team advanced to the finals only to come in second place against a very competitive Greenhill team.
The second tournament was the Howdy Bowl Tournament played on November 14. In the Elementary Division with eighteen teams competing, our F Team won the tournament with a special shout out to Thomas, our lone 5th-grade student on this team. In the Middle School Division, our A team qualified for the national tournament. In a field of thirty-eight schools, our A team was ranked 4th and the B team 10th.
Spending Saturdays that start at 7:30 AM in front of a computer shows dedication and commitment. Congratulations to all of our teams!
