Northeast Regional Results

May 8, 2000

by Robert Carter

South Hills Assembly of God from Bethel Park, Pennsylvania edged out a narrow win in the Northeast Regional Tournament, and will lead a five-team contingent to National Finals which includes four teams from the Penn-Del District, three from suburban Pittsburgh and two from a single church. Living Waters Chapel of Lebanon, PA beat out Allison Park "Heart and Mind" team in a second-place playoff, and Expressway Assembly of Buffalo, New York gained fourth place in a playoff with Allison Park's "Whatever" team. Expressway's Dan McLaughlin took overall individual honors.

South Hills gets an automatic berth in the Championship Division at the 2000 National Finals in Lafayette, Indiana, while the second- through fifth-place teams will determine their fate in the qualifying rounds on the first day of Nationals.

Nine teams also competed in the tournament's B Division, which consisted of teams of sixth- through eighth-grade quizzers who covered Galatians, Ephesians and Phiilppians. Grace Assembly of Syracuse, NY won the division undefeated, with Allison Park second in a playoff win over South Hills. Teresa Henderson of South Hills was the top individual scorer.

Thanks to National Teen Quiz Coordinator Pastor Bernie Elliot for these results.
