Dunwoody High School Quiz Bowl Team

Finishes 2nd in State Tournament

 
Congratulations to the DHS Varsity Quiz Bowl team on finishing #2 in the AAAAA State Varsity Quiz Bowl Tournament! Our team of senior Sahima Godkhindi, and teammates Zack Bloomberg, Thomas Dellaert, Mallory Harris, Varsha Narendra, Saakya Peechara and Jacky Zhu, went 6-1 in the prelims, earning the #3 seed in the playoffs. In the playoffs, we had a scrappy quarterfinal win over #6 seed Ola, and then our MVP on the day Thomas Dellaert went on a scoring tear in the semifinal match against Northview, leading us to a 390-110 win. We played Bainbridge in the state championship round, and it was a tight game, tied with just 5 questions to go, but Bainbridge surged at the end to win 270-200.   

The team went 8-2 in the tournament and outscored its opponents by a combined 2720-1620.

Today's performance qualified Dunwoody for its first trip to the NAQT national tournament at the end of May!

Congratulations to the DHS Quiz Bowl Team and their sponsor, Mr. Wise!!!!

  1. The team wants everyone to know that the win is dedicated to senior team captain Erin Thomas, who couldn't play Saturday because of a college interview. Erin was disappointed to miss the last and biggest tournament of the season, but now that we're going to the National Championships, the State Tournament was neither last nor biggest!
