The Mason High School Academic Quiz Team finished the school’s first 18-0 undefeated GMC season.
“We are now 35-1 in the GMC over the past two years, and back-to-back GMC champions,” said third year captain George Valcarcel.
The MHS Academic Quiz Team is not one to rest on its laurels though. On Wednesday February 17, the Quiz Team participated in the Student v. Staff quiz bowl match. This epic showdown of knowledge was held in the MHS Kiva, while MBC Sports Radio captured the play-by-play action.
On February 20, Mason’s first ever Academic Quiz tournament will be held. More than a dozen teams from across the region will arrive at MHS to compete in this all day event, which will be the first standard national circuit event in the Greater Cincinnati Region in over a decade.
“Mason is leading the charge in bringing more quiz bowl opportunities to our area of the state,” added Valcarcel.
The Academic Team is coached by Thurman Allen and Mark Wyatt.
