Congratulations to Team WV A and Sunset, the winner of the Varsity and Junior Varsity divisions respectively in our Oregon History Bowl!

Our tournament was held on Saturday, February 7th 2015 and featured 19 teams in three divisions from 8 different schools!

Despite St. George’s A being close on their heels the entire day, Team WV A managed an undefeated record in the 6 preliminary Varsity rounds, earning themselves the gold. In the Junior Varsity division, Sunset went undefeated over the 5 preliminary rounds, but were only a few points ahead of Team WV B. In the final, Sunset gained a huge lead in the second quarter by earning 120 points to Team WV B’s 10. Team WV B attempted to rally, but couldn’t overcome the massive lead. The final score wa 290-190 in Sunset’s favor.

Congratulations to Shouvik Deb of Team WV and Jonathan Tran of Team WV, the winners of our Varsity and Junior Varsity History Bees respectively!

There was tough competition in the Varsity division between Shouvik and St. George’s Cody Mekas, as the two were within one point at the conclusion of the preliminary rounds. It was the first to five in the final, and while Cody was hot on his heels, Shouvik got the 8th question correct for his 5th point and the gold.

In the Junior Varsity division, 8 finalists battled it out in three stages to declare a winner. In stage one, Jonathan quickly reached his point threshold and was followed shortly after by Sunset’s Harish Palani, Stoller’s Isaac Kim, Sunset’s Feroze Hasan, and Columbia River 6th grader Andrew Douglas. The five students went on to compete in the second stage, where Jonathan again proved his history knowledge by getting out on the fifth question. After a few more tossups, Harish Palani of Sunset followed him into the final stage, where Jonathan took the gold.

Thank you all for a wonderful day of history quiz fun! We hope you can all join us for our Washington State Championships (which is open to out-of-state teams) on 3/7 at Klahowya Secondary School!
