The Ord Senior High Quiz Bowl Team competed in two different competitions this past season.  Quiz Bowl provides students with the opportunity to show their knowledge in a vast number of content areas.  Topics can range from extreme technical medical terms to established composers of Opera in the 1500’s. The first competition for the Chants was on March 25th at UNK with the ESU 10 Unit hosting.  There were over 35 schools across the state represented at this contest and while the Chants were unable to advance to the final rounds, they competed at a high level. The Lou Platte Conference Quiz Bowl, held in Doniphan on April 10th, was the second tournament for the Senior High Quiz Bowl Team.  Despite drawing some tough rounds where only 3 or 4 questions out of the 12 were answered by either team, the Chants were able to prevail in several pivotal situations and walk away a couple of wins.  Members of the 2019 team include: Ethan Reiss, Lydia Hill, Cooper Sheets, Aaron White, Madeline Bengston, and Calen Pollard.
