GSST Quiz Bowl Team

The GSST Quiz Bowl team of Jenny Gu (Tabb HS), James Harrington (Warwick HS), Lewis McAllister (Menchville HS), Rachel McNamara (Tabb HS), Kate Perkins (Warwick HS), and Jakob Weiss (Lafayette HS) travelled to the PACE National Scholastic Championship June 2nd – 3rd.  The team was just formed this year. The first quiz bowl match GSST attended was the MVGS Open at the Mountain Vista Governor’s School. The team took a lot of lessons from that competition, as for many, it was the first quiz bowl they had attended in that format. A few weeks later, New Horizons competed in William & Mary’s second annual James Blair bowl. The team won second place at that event, with 3 members earning awards as top 10 scorers. It has been an honor to compete this year.  The team has been hard at work practicing for the upcoming championship.  They would especially like to thank their coach Dr. Woo, the York Foundation for Public Education, Lafayette High School, and Newport News Public Schools for making this all possible.
