Independence's Quiz Bowl contingent experienced great success, both collectively and individually, at the 23-team Charter Middle School Challenge on March 9 in Wilmington.
Independence's 'A' and 'B' teams both finished with 6-2 records near the top of the standings in the Experienced Division. Eighth graders Ben, Clare, Gautam and Jacob make up the 'A' team, while the 'B' team consists of seventh graders Gates, Louie, Nico, Tess and Veer. The 'B' group, like its 'A' counterpart did back in December, qualified for the 2019 Middle School National Championship Tournament (MSNCT) at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, from May 10-12.
The 'D' team, composed of seventh graders Jessica, Olivia, Om and Varun, finished undefeated at 9-0 to place first in the Novice Division.
Jacob (third place) and Nico (fifth) were recognized for overall individual scoring in the Experienced Division, while Jessica (first) and Olivia (fourth) achieved the same feat for Novice.
Independence's 'C' team - eighth grader Eason and seventh graders Fischer, Parker and Rai - concluded the event with a 5-3 record in the Experienced Division.
