Undefeated Wallace Quiz Bowl Team Caps Fall Season With 3rd Straight Win

Wallace State’s Quiz Bowl Team recently capped off its fall season with a third straight tournament championship winning the Wallace State Invitational.

Earlier in the semester, the Wallace State Quiz Bowl team also prevailed at the Alabama College Bowl League at Coastal Alabama Community College in Bay Minette and won the Cerebral Weevil competition at Enterprise State.

In all three tournaments, Wallace State has impressively lost only one round, competing in a field of 12 teams at most events.

Wallace State Quiz Bowl team members are:

★ Derik Arendall
★ Brett Hogan
★ Elivia Jones
★ Paul Knetter
★ Caleb Still
★ Zakk Waddell
★ Ross Wallace

Waddell, Wallace and Arendall are West Point High graduates. Knetter is from Gardendale. Hogan is from Fairview, and Still is from Cullman. Jones hails from Baileyton.

Wallace State’s next tournament is in January at Bevill State, where the team will compete in a qualifying event for the National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT). Wallace State is a member of the Alabama College Bowl League.

Wallace State has four returning team members who finished ninth nationally in March at the 2017 National Academic Quiz Tournaments’ Community College Championship. The event was held at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn.

Christine O’Leary, a Wallace State physics instructor, is the team sponsor.
