High School Quiz Bowl League Names Division Winners
The final matches in the 18-team, three-division Seneca / Wyandot / Put-in-Bay / Sandusky / Crawford High School Quiz Bowl League were played at Hopewell-Loudon High School, Mohawk High School, and North Central Academy on November 20.
For the second year in a row, and with the same 8-1 record, Clyde takes the first place in the North Division. Old Fort (5-3), whose last trophy came in 2011-2012 and whose team now includes several former Bettsville players, takes second. Put-in-Bay (5-4), last year’s second place winner, is third this year.
In the partially reconfigured Central Division, Hopewell-Loudon (9-0), last year’s South Division winner is first; Columbian (9-1), who lost only to Hopewell-Loudon, last year’s Central Division winner, is second. Saint Wendelin (7-2), who had taken the third spot two years ago in the South Division, is back in third place, this year in the Central Division.
In the South Division, another partially reconfigured Division, Seneca East (8-1), last year’s second place winner in the Central Division, is first. Last year Mohawk (5-4) went home with the third place trophy. This year, the team goes home in second place. Carey (4-5) moved from the bottom spot in the Division last year to third place this year, edging out New Riegel, also 4-5, by an earlier win over them.
The top division winners, Clyde, North Division; Hopewell-Loudon, Central Division; and Seneca East, South Division, by their wins, have qualified for the Ohio Academic Competition Northwest regionals in April. Seneca East returns as a qualifier after a one-year absence. Clyde and Hopewell-Loudon were qualifiers last year, Hopewell-Loudon, a double-qualifier having also won the tournament. The top two winners of each of the six regionals across the state in April 2015 will advance to the state championship in Columbus in May.
The next event for the League is the tournament to be held at the First Lutheran Church in Tiffin in December.
