Pinewood's Quiz Bowl Team places at National Academic Championship


Pinewood Preparatory School's High School Quiz Bowl Team placed in the top 10 at this year's 31st Annual National Academic Championship.

The three-time SCISA State Champions recently traveled to Washington, D.C. where they battled for the championship against 64 other teams in their division. After knocking of the No. 17 and No. 1-ranked teams in the nation, the Pinewood team was eliminated in the semi-finals by the sixth-ranked team from Deer Park, Oklahoma.

Despite their early exit, co-captain Marshall Simmons said the team had a great time.

"Overall, the tournament was a great experience and a wonderful opportunity to meet other academic teams from around the nation," said Simmons in a statement.

Pinewood Prep's High School Quiz Bowl teammates also include co-captain Austin Pahl, Sean Carter, and Logan Dwyer.

This was Pinewoods first time competing in this invitational.
