Trinity High School 2018 Quiz Bowl Team

Trinity High School's quiz bowl team competed in the Pennsylvania State Academic Competition in Harrisburg on April 27. Twenty-two high school teams who won regional competitions across the state competed in matches that tested their knowledge of history, arts, literature, geography, science and current events. Trinity represented the Capital Area Intermediate Unit’s region.

After the initial rounds of competition, Trinity was tied for fourth place and qualified for the afternoon playoff matches. In the semi-finals, Trinity narrowly outscored Allentown Central Catholic to gain one of three spots in the finals. The championship match slated Trinity against Great Valley High School from Chester County and Friends Select from Philadelphia. The final contest remained close throughout, but Great Valley pulled away at the end. Our team finished in second place as the state runner-up. Trinity was awarded a $500 scholarship for the second-place finish.

Trinity’s quiz bowl team consisted of senior Andrew Bowman, and sophomores Connor Coyle, Luke Capper, Michael Staiger and Greyson Sheller.
