It's not easy to play one of your biggest matches of the season as your first, but that's exactly what Turpin Academic Quiz Team had to do on 12-4-13. Anderson crossed Beechmont Avenue to play Turpin at home. Historically, Turpin's AQT do not fair well during their first matches of the season and unfortunately this year was no different. It looked as though Anderson was going to have a clean sweep agains the Spartans.
The Academic Quiz Team's Seniors enjoyed their dinner on November 8, 2013. Continuing the team's tradition of the Senior Class choosing the Quote for the back of the team shirt to be worn this season. The Class of 2014 had their lap tops, smart phones, and year books open looking up different quotes suitable for this year. The Senior also have the honor of picking out the team's spirit wear to be ordered. The Class of 2014 took this one step further and created a new logo to be used by Turpin's AQT. Senior Captain, Erin Hedrick designed a new logo of a brain with a Spartan helmet. Sports Connection employee, Jay was able to add Turpin's colors for a great new look. The Seniors are excitied to start the season!
