Team History
This team is made up of young quizzers with great potential, led by a super speedy, but sometimes lazy 6 year veteran just reaching the peak of her potential. Looking to improve last year's National Championship (Challenger Division).

Most exciting match this season
The playoff game for 2nd place at District Finals. We had lost a close match in regular play, but beat the team by a very large margin. Daniel scored 150 points (his first ever in the A league).

Favorite non-quiz related moment(s) this year
After an all weekend quiz practice, Daniel B. almost broke his leg when he jumped off the shed roof onto a trampoline. His foot stuck in the springs as he catapulted head over heels, Drew had to jump down onto the trampoline to extricate Daniel's leg from the springs. Austin videotaped the entire escapade.
