Port Huron High School’s Varsity Quiz Bowl team is headed to States. The team has won both the Blue Water Quiz Bowl League regular season and the League tournament after Quiz Bowl season wrapped for local teams last Thursday, but the Port Huron High team still has some work to do as they prepare for the meetup of the best teams in the state at Michigan State University on March 28. Yes, that is during Spring Break, but families have adjusted their schedules to make room for the big event.
When asked what made this year’s team so special, Coach Kelly Harrington had a lot to say. She said, “What makes this team special is that they truly are a team. They communicate so well with each other on the Bonus questions, and each player brings different knowledge to the table.” Harrington said, “They often get together to practice trivia outside of just school practice. They have amazing sportsmanship and most of all they like to have fun,” citing they are an amazing group to work with.
The team is also coached by Richard Schneeberger, and Christine Richmond. The team is made up of nine seniors and two juniors. Quiz Bowl is a trivia and strategy competition for both middle school, junior varsity, and varsity teams that has a 35-year tradition.
