Dunwoody High School Quiz Bowl Team
Results from GATA Quiz Bowl Tournament
Team Qualifies for Nationals

Update:  It's official!  The Quiz Bowl team has qualified for nationals with its 5th place finish at the GATA Winter Tournament. 

The High School National Championship Tournament takes place from May 30th to June 1st in Chicago

Congratulations to the DHS Quiz Bowl Team on its performance in the GATA Winter Tournament on Saturday the 23rd. 

The A team was undefeated in the prelims, outscoring its opponents 2115 to 715, including handily defeating Walton.  The team of captain Thomas Dellaert, Jacky Zhu, Craig Sturken, Varsha Narendra, and Ryan Polk earned the #4 seed and advanced to the quarterfinals before losing to Marist. We are expecting to hear that this finish will qualify DHS for nationals for the second consecutive year, and for the second time in DHS history.

Our B team of Kendall Lowrey, Gerardo Romero, Parul Rai, Alex Hoang and Ryan Wirtz didn't make the playoffs but performed very well for a mostly JV team in a field that included most of the best varsity teams in the state.
