Team History
This is Journey A/G's fourth time at Nationals out of five seasons in the A League. Journey placed in the championship bracket each year, with last year being the best overall finish at 9th place. Journey is excited about this ministry of our Lord's. Although the competition is great fun, the fellowship around quiz has impacted Journey's quiz families the most.

Interesting Historical Tidbits
Assistant Coach, Grant Warnock started Journey quizzing as a National level team by finishing as top individual scorer at Nationals in Journey's first season of A League quizzing in 2008. He learned to quiz at the National level by watching Jeff Sharkey's 2007 National competition videos that were posted online.

Most exciting match this season
Winning the final match at Regionals for Journey's best ever Regional finish.

Favorite contest (weirdest, funniest, etc)
Colton contesting the validity of a question that asked for an exclamation when the answer was a question. He said the question is highlighted pink in his Scripture portion (as additional proof that it was a question and not an exclamation). He further stated that he currently had an "A" in his English class (indicating the judges can trust him on this one).

Favorite quiz question (weirdest, funniest, etc)
Not sure. But we do like Aaron Kohler's questions.

Favorite verse from the material
Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Tournaments attended this year
Gobblefest
Friendship Classic
Three Rivers Classic


Favorite non-quiz related moment(s) this year
Walking around New York City after Regionals with Colton attempting to talk with a New Yorker accent.

What opportunities has your team had to use Bible Quiz outside of the church?
Being involved in Bible Quiz in general, and being able to recite Scripture verses in particular, has created opportunities to share with family, friends and classmates.
