Most exciting match this season
The match against Overland Park at Regionals. Very tight match the whole way through. Daniel had two wrong after four questions, but still continued to fight and make great hits throughout the game. Near the end of the game, Ariel had quizzed out and none of our guys had. Luke made a great hit on the 18th question, a ten pointer, and got us up by 5 points. Question 19 comes for twenty points. Jesse makes a top notch interruption and gets it right to seal the game. On question 20 Daniel even got the quiz out, battling back from having no right and two wrong very early in the match. It won us Regionals, allowing us to 3-peat as South Central Champs. I don't think that's ever been done before in our Region.

Favorite contest (weirdest, most clever, etc) Nothing too ingenious this season, although we have hotly debated whether the Holy Spirit is a what, a whom or both multiple times this season.
Any, and all, of Joey Bohanon's Statement and Quotation questions!

Favorite non-quiz related moment this year
Jesse and Daniel drove down to the Houston Tourney with Greg House and his team, stayed in a hotel room that weekend with Steve Fowler, and were guest-coached by Bryan Turner! Needless to say (but we'll say it anyway!), they had a blast hanging out with those Bible Quiz "greats"!
