<b><i>Quiz bowl nationals...<br></b></i>
Grand County Middle School’s two quiz bowl teams recently competed at the national tournament held in Washington, D.C. “Competing at a national level was an amazing educational experience for students and both teams won half their matches,” said Heidi Wainer, one of the parents who accompanied the students on the trip. Both teams missed qualifying for playoffs by less than 20 points. After the competition, the teams enjoyed seeing the sights in the nation’s capital. The quiz bowl teams thanked their coach, Mike Estenson, and dedicated their entire season to Estenson’s father, who passed away on their second day of national competitions. In addition, the team members thanked all of their local sponsors whose donations helped them raise the money needed to travel to the competition.
