Saint James Students Earn 2nd Place & 12th Place Honors in M.A.S.T. Quiz Bowl Tournament
The Saint James Quiz Bowl team, monitored by Mrs. Gail Semliatschenko, recently traveled to the Marine Academy of Science and Technology in Sandy Hook to compete in the annual Quiz Bowl Tournament. At the middle school level, quiz bowl, is a competitive, academic, interscholastic activity for which players attend periodic practices and then represent their school at tournaments. Quiz bowl questions range over the entire spectrum of the middle school curriculum and also include a certain amount of current events, sports, and popular culture.
We would like to offer our congratulations to our 2 teams who competed in the annual modified Jeopardy-style tournament. The teams represented our school very well. With a very competitive field of 26 teams, one of our teams achieved 2nd Place honors and the other 12th Place.
