Upper School Quiz Bowl Places First in State

Upper School Quiz Bowl Places First in State
Representing St. Martin’s, three varsity and three junior varsity Upper School quiz players at the Louisiana Quiz Bowl Alliance State Championship tournament came in first. In an exciting day of competition, StM and Lusher worked their way through six games, each crushing their opponents. As both teams were undefeated, they played three more matches to determine the best of three. Lusher beat the Saints in the first match, but StM was commanding in the remaining games and won the championship!

Representing St. Martin’s were Caitlin Bagnetto, Clara Conatser, Bruce Miller, Bryce Monier, Collin Shannon, and Cameron Tolar. Bryce Monier was named to the All State Team. He was also named 'player of the week' by National Academic Quiz Tournaments

The students play next at Nationals in Chicago later this month. Last year St. Martin’s team took home a third place finish in the National Academic Quiz Tournament’s 2017 Small School National Championship, which was also held in Chicago. The Small School National Championship Tournament (SSNCT) is NAQT’s annual championship event for small high schools. Bryce Monier was the overall individual high scorer for the entire tournament in 2017.
