Allison Park takes top two spots at Michiana Quiz November 1, 1999

by Robert Carter The largest tournament in Teen Bible Quiz had a familiar name atop the standings of its A Division, as two teams from Allison Park, Pennsylvania Assembly of God finished first and second in the annual Michiana Quiz in Elkhart, Indiana. But what may be an indicator of things to come is the team that finished fourth. Calvary Assembly of Dunwoody, Georgia has been one of the also-rans in Georgia District competition for years, but that was before they got a new coach. Now longtime Allison Park head coach John Porter is running the program, after being transferred by his employer to Atlanta earlier this year. And already Porter's efforts are bearing fruit in Dunwoody's first-ever invitational tournament entry. South Hills A/G of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania (#1 team) finished third.

A huge field of 61 teams from eight statescompeted in four divisions. Living Waters A/G of Lebanon, Pennsylvania took first place in the B Division. South Hills's #3 team won the title in the C Division, and Stone Church of Palos Heights, Illinois' #2 team won the Novice Division.

Our thanks to Jeff Papendick for the full results.
