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.
Turpin Academic Quiz Team won all three matches against the King Knights! Varsity won two and JV won one match. Unfortunately, Kings does not have a Freshman team this year. Turpin's Freshman had to sit this one out.
Next Wednesday 2-15-12 will be our last home match at 3:30pm in the Media Center. Come out, cheer on and thank our wonderful Senior players!
