The middle school team chows down on some doughnuts before the competition begins.

You might not realize it, but Robinson has a quiz bowl team and club. Quiz bowl is an academic challenge game, similar to Jeopardy! or It’s Academic, in which two teams, consisting of about four players, answer a series of tossup and bonus questions.

On November 6, Centennial High School in Ellicott City, Maryland, hosted a quiz bowl tournament. 102 teams participated, in three levels: Varsity, Novice, and Elementary/Middle, including four from Robinson, referred to as Robinson A, B, C, and D. (A (varsity) and B (novice) for the high school, C and D middle).

The middle school teams did astoundingly well. The C team had a record of 5-0 in the morning, placing in the top playoff bracket, while D was 3-2, placing in the lower bracket, but still admirable, as all were new players. In the playoffs, both C and D team won  three games out of five, in their respective brackets. Overall, Robinson did extremely well.

Middle School C team: Sufian A (captain), Aaron O, Patrick G, Bridget S.

Middle School D team: Sophie C (captain), Jack S, Joseph F, Andy R.

Middle School Quiz Bowl Club Sponsors: Mr. Campana, Ms. Reade

Robinson’s high school “It’s Academic” Scholastic Quiz Bowl team has consistently ranked as one of the top teams in the DC metro area.

The middle school quiz bowl team meets after school on Thursdays in Mr. Campana’s room, D201.
