Faculty and Students’ Battle of the Brains

In what has become an annual tradition, the WV Quiz Bowl team took on the WV Faculty in a “battle of the brains.” The Quiz Bowl team was lead by seniors Andy Bernhardt, Dan Bernstein, and Eduardo Nombera in this academic competition while the faculty team varied from period to period.

Many departments were represented with teachers from the English, Math, Science, History, and Technology Departments. Questions came from categories such as European Landmarks, Pop Culture: May 2019, Geometric Math, Veep, and WV Literature. A good time was had by both teams while they brainstormed and collaborated together to a definitive answer. The various categories challenged both the educators and Quiz Bowl Team. While the Quiz Bowl team won round 4, period 9, the WV faculty were the overall winners, victorious for their third year in a row.

Any student interested in a fun extracurricular activity with a focus on teamwork and friendly competition should consider joining the WV Quiz Bowl Team next year. They engage in many different competitions in addition to the student faculty battle!
