WMS Quiz Bowl Team Competes at National Tournament

The Williamston Middle School Quiz Bowl team competed in the 2022 Middle School National Tournament in Chicago. This marks the third consecutive year the team has qualified for the national competition, but the first time, due to the pandemic, they were able to participate in person. 
 
The students played some of the best teams in the country, earning an overall record of 3 and 5. One of the losses came down to one question. 
 
Team captains Joey and Luke both scored in the top 25% nationally of all individual scorers. The team improved their overall place from 2021 from 107th overall to 105th.
 
Students were also to enjoy some team time together in Chicago during the weekend event. Congratulations and thank you to Coach Jonny Ellis, quiz bowl students, and parents for their excellent representation of Williamston at this prestigious event.
