Most exciting match this season
Kaitlyn, Kayla and Miranda's favorite/most exciting match was the playoff round at regionals this year.
Favorite contest (weirdest, most clever, etc) A quizzer on the other team was answering a quote and said "cupper" instead of supper. The officials (who were laughing) originally ruled correct. I was about to take a 5pt foul and call contest and all 3 of my quizzers at table yelled contest. The whole time Kayla was giving the contest the rest of us were hysterical. The other team tried arguing the new quotation rule, but even 1 or more teammates turned and said, "You said cupper!" We have no idea why they ruled correct, but we won the contest.
Favorite quiz question Only one verse contains dashes. Give this verse.
Favorite verse from Corinthians
