Dunwoody High School Quiz Bowl Team
ACF College Quiz Bowl Tournament Results

The Dunwoody Academic Quiz Bowl Team played its first ever college tournament this weekend, with excellent results.

In the ACF College Bowl tournament at Georgia Tech, the team went 5-5, defeating the University of South Carolina, Auburn University's A and B teams, the College of Charleston, and Georgia Tech's B team.  Two of our losses were extremely close games to Florida's Chipola College, one coming down to the final question, and the other to the next to the last question.   

Our other losses were to UGA, Vanderbilt and Dorman (one of the other high school teams in the tournament, Dorman is perennially in the top ten high school teams in the nation). 

Captain Thomas Dellaert led our scoring, with strong contributions from senior Jacky Zhu, sophomore Ryan Polk, and junior Zack Bloomberg. Kudos also to our assistant coach Brighton Kamen, who did a fantastic job reading and judging in this challenging event. 

The next competition for the DHS Quiz Bowl Team is Saturday,  November 16th at the Brookwood Varsity Invitational.
