DMC Quiz Bowl Team Qualifies for Nationals
On November 7 DMC's senior Iowa Quiz Bowl League team of Alex Niemann, Eva Thomas, Mallory Fynaardt, Alex Mona, and Nic Rhoads competed in the Iowa Quiz Bowl League Fall Open Tournament. They went undefeated in the first four rounds, and after a tiebreaker, earned second place out of 18 teams from across the state.
This finish qualified them for both the High School National Quiz Bowl Championship and the Small School National Quiz Bowl Championship next spring.
“Like everything else, the Quiz Bowl is different in 2020, "said Mrs. Rhoads, the team's advisor. "All of our events have been online so far, which creates a very different dynamic. As a team mom and now their advisor, it’s been so fun to watch our seniors grow together as a team. It’s an incredible accomplishment for them to have qualified for two national tournaments!”
The group has competed together since 8th grade.
