Team History
The 2009 TBQ team (Tiffany Wu, David Zheng, Anthony Ho) from OCCEC was the first team from a charter church to qualify for Nationals.

Favorite Quiz Question
There was a simple question during a league competition that went something like, “Whose aroma are we?” David buzzed in and we all thought the question was relatively straightforward, while David sat there with a puzzled expression on his face for the entire thirty seconds. During the confer, we told him what the answer was, and he suddenly exclaimed, “OOOH! I thought the quizmaster said, ‘Who’s a Roman army?’”

Favorite verse from Corinthians
1 Corinthians 12:24-25 “…But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.”

Favorite non-quiz related moment this year
In June, when we were having a break from quoting, David made up a simple but challenging game for us to play. He placed a small coffee table and an empty wastebasket in a line. The challenge was to bounce the tennis ball off the coffee table and into the wastebasket. After numerous failed attempts, David was about to give up when he decided to try once more. Before bouncing the ball off the table, he held up the ball and declared, “Or my middle name is not Yilong!” To our surprise and laughter, he finally succeeded. Then David told Tiffany to try, and she skeptically agreed. Before throwing the ball, she said, “Or my middle name is not Jessica…” and lo and behold, it made it in!
