Students with the Northview High School Quiz Bowl team competed in the Western Indiana Conference Tournament Monday at Sullivan, placing second in the varsity division and first in the junior varsity division.

The NHS varsity team was composed of Zeb Thomas, Caroline Disney and Gwendolyn Snow. The squad defeated South Vermillion in the first round of competition, but then lost to Sullivan, which went on to win the WIC title, knocking off the Knights.

The NHS Junior Varsity team, however, won its title. The team is composed of Shad Brattain, Bethany Wright and Kaylee Strycker.

The squad tied South Vermillion and beat Sullivan in first-round action. However, the Knights then defeated South Vermillion again to win the final round.

The competition consisted of two eight-minute halves, with the panels of students buzzing in to answer a wide variety of questions ranging in all areas of school curriculum from high-level math to literary authors/characters, to geography.
