7th/8th Grade Quiz Bowl Team Finishes in 5th Place

The 7th and 8th Grade Quiz Bowl team once again competed at the State Tournament at the University of Oklahoma in Norman on April 13.  There were 18 teams competing at State in Class A.  Welch went to the contest ranked #1 due to their high scorings at Regionals. 

Competition began at 10 am, but Welch had a bye in Round 1, then beat Cleora in Round 2 200-130.  In Round 3, Welch competed against LeFlore and lost 210-250.  Welch again had a Bye for Round 4 and then faced Roff in Round 5.  Welch won 270-140.  Welch then played Pond Creek in Round 6 and won 260-130.  Finally, in Round 7, Welch lost to Leedey by two questions to finish in 5th place.  The team and Mrs. Seigel began practicing in September every Tuesday and Thursday after school until 5 pm.  The students also study outside of practice.  They’ve devoted a lot of time and effort this year and we are proud of you!  

The team is not finished for the year – they’ve been invited to compete in the 37th Annual National Academic Championship in Washington, D. C. May 31-June 2.  If you’d like to contribute to help offset the expenses of the trip, please contact Mrs. Seigel at jseigel@welchwildcats.net or (918) 788-3129.  Thank you for your support!
