The first Quiz Match of the season was against our rivial team, Anderson High School. The Match was held on December 5, 2012 at Anderson High School. As always this is the team that Turpin tries their best to beat. The tension was high in the room when the match started. Both Turpin and Anderson hoping for a WIN. However, this time we tied. Varisty tied 1-1, JV lost, Freshman won. They were all close matches. Look out Anderson- We'll be BACK!
Academic Quiz Team Try-outs were 11-5-12. Coach Bridges now has 35 players for this year's team. Many of the players are returning this year. Varsity & JV quiz team members will play seven matches. Unfortunately, not all schools have a Freshman team, so our Freshman team will play in less. Varsity will also compete in the ECC tournament.
Turpin's Academic Quiz Team had to go to sudden death in the finals of the FAVC Championships this week, but lost to Little Miami by a slim 33-32 margin to garner 2nd place in the FAVC tournament. The teams were tied in regulation, and then remained tied after 5 tie-breaker questions were read before heading to sudden death, where the Panthers came up the first correct response to win the FAVC title.
The Turpin Academic Quiz Team won their division with an undefeated 7-0 record at the Copley Invitational Tourmament last weekend, qualifying them for the Ohio Academic Regional Tournament April 21 at Cincinnati State with a shot at the State Championships in May.
