Michiana Tournament October 1998

by Staff Writer John Hunter reported that this year's Michiana Invitational was one of the best ever; and with 59 teams and high-quality administration no one would argue. In fact, John has turned Michiana into THE early tournament to attend in the Eastern-Midwest and East Coast. John has been a staple in Bible Quiz for many years as a coach and has used his experience to make Michiana the place to be for many teams. Great Job John!

Helping to bolster that 59 team total was Allison Park Assembly of Pittsburgh, PA, which entered a total of ten teams in the tournament. And AP's #2 team, led by tournament top scorer Jim Fenton, went undefeated in the A Division and took the overall title. District rival Evangel Heights A/G of Sarver, PA finished second with two losses, edging out First A/G of Oskaloosa, IA on total points.

A whopping 59 teams entered this year's tournament. Here's the complete team results, plus the top individuals in each of the four divisions:
