Turpin's Academic Quiz Team played three matches in the last week. They have taken on Milford, Loveland and Winton Woods.
After a tough week of studies and tests the AQT got together to relax. The players enjoyed pizza, chips, veggies, fruit salad, cupcakes and brownies. They were able to unwind by playing air hockey, board games and just hanging out. It was a great way for the team to bond. The players take their classes serious, many of the them talked about the difficult exams. Turpin educators have certainly challenged these intelligent students. It was nice for them to "chill" a little.
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.
