MMS Quiz Bowl Excels in PA

On Saturday, January 18th, 17 members of the Middlesex Middle School traveled to Manheim Township High School in Lancaster, PA to take part in the second annual Manheim Township Middle School Academic Challenge.  This tournament featured some of the east coast's highest ranked teams, 22 teams in all. Middlesex entered 3 teams.  Our A team finished an impressive 3rd, with an overall record of 8 - 1.  The A team was lead by 8th grade captain Julia Tong, and also included 8th grader Casey Martin, 7th graders Thomas Brown and Evan Tong, and 6th grader John Phipps. Though both of our B and C team finished preliminary-round play 3 - 2, neither of them qualified for the playoffs.  The B Team was lead by 6th grade captain Colin Adams, and featured 7th graders Griffin Samroengraja, Willem Schuddeboom, and 6th graders Riya Krishnan, and Maya Nalawade.  In one of their games, the B Team upset the eventual runners-up, Longfellow Middle School, from Fairfax, Virginia.  The C-Team was led by 7th grade captain Olivia Yoo, and included 7th graders Charlotte Juan and Sarah Murphy, and 6th graders Jack Roberson, Skylar Bennett, and Catherine Vogt.  Of special note, Julia Tong was the tournament's 2nd overall individual scorer, and Jack Roberson was the 3rd.
