Quiz Bowl

Quiz Bowl is an irreverent action-packed season of knowledge based academic matches and tournaments that puts South High’s quickest and brightest students against the rest of the city, the state and eventually the world.  Students practice 3 days a week beginning in late October and continue on through April.  Teams of different levels of skill and experience enter academic contests throughout the year.  They wage cranial war against other local teams using only their wits, humor and an endless backlog of up-until-now useless trivia.  An appreciation for obscure knowledge, facts and data along with a severe disdain for pompous, pretentious pedantry are useful tools in this action-packed, fun-filled academic endeavor.  Quiz Bowl is never dull; it’s often cerebral and is always an unpredictable good time.
