Quizbowl Team Rocks Chicago

Last weekend, Maggie Walker’s Quizbowl team, also known as the "BoB Squad," flew to Chicago to participate in the HSNCT National Championship. The team, composed of Kevin Yuan (Henrico '14), Vasa Clarke (Henrico '14), Connor Wood (Henrico '15), Will Overman (Hanover '16), and Patrick Canteros (Chesterfield '16), defeated longtime Virginia rival Western Albemarle in the octofinals to take fifth place out of 272 teams. 

MLWGS has historically had one of the strongest Quizbowl teams in the nation, and is proud to continue its tradition of excellence. While in Chicago, the team discovered deep-dish pizza, and devoted almost as much time to studying as to watching movies. The team, which is made up of over fifteen students from all grades, is coached by Hana Reed and Juanita Lasswell.
