Last year in Novice the team took 1st in both the Missouri Classic and Owasso Extreme tournaments. At the 2009 South Central Regionals (without Paul Meddaugh) the team took 2nd. We feel blessed that we get to come to TBQ Nationals this year. This is our first year is A-League and the team has done very well. Thanks to Owasso for letting us quiz (and mentor us) every Monday night. Thanks to Zach Sullivan and Cheri Smith for your Bible Quiz training.
Most exciting match this season
The 2nd round of Regions was with Highpointe from (OKC,OK). Paul fizzed out and David quizzed out giving us 105 with Highpointe with only 80. The match was on Question 19 for the 20 points. Micah Samuelson from Highpointe has a good hit and he gets all of the question read to him. If Micah Samuelson answers it, he will quiz out and we loose the match. Micah Samuelson was the 2nd best quizzers at regions this year. The time started ticking down .. Micah says nothing. Tick,tick . Im thinking Is he going to say something. Tick,tick ...beep! We won. Now, this is not the way I like to win a match. I the coach wanted to put as the most exciting match was when we beat Breaswood in the playoffs. My quizzers said that the playoff match was a great match but the most exciting match was with Highpointe.
Favorite verse from Corinthians
1 Corinthians 15:57-58 "But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ"
