THREE-PEAT CITY CHAMPIONS!!!
At this year's city Quiz Bowl championships, the McMillan Blue team of Sam Messbarger, Isaac Regier, Jacob Stacy, Isabel Belongia, and Stephen Siy sailed through the early rounds, handily defeated all their opponents, and earned a 7th round bye and a spot in the semifinal round.
The Gold team of Miles Kay, Jessa Bateman, Max Adams, Coltin Heath, and Mitch Kellogg suffered a first round loss to Buffett A, forcing the Monarchs to fight their way through the contenders bracket. They defeated their remaining opponents to reach the 7th round, where they again met Buffett A and delivered a crushing 180-125 win, sending Buffett to third place and earning the Monarchs a spot in the semifinals.
In the all-Monarch final round which guaranteed us an historic 1st-2nd finish, the Gold team defeated the Blue team 155-100. Because the Gold team had one loss on their record, they had to play a tiebreaker. In an exciting 30 question round, the Gold team prevailed 115-65 and earned the Monarchs our first THREE-PEAT City Championship. Way to go, Monarchs!
