Coach Bill Murphy writes: "The Quiz Bowl team had a fantastic weekend as they won both the Vermont Scholars Bowl on Saturday April 5 and the New Hampshire Quiz Bowl League Championship on Sunday April 6.

"Saturday's team of Dylan Matthews, Travers Rhodes, Finola Prendergast, Nick Sinnott-Armstrong, Nick O'Leary and Aaron Watanabe defeated South Burlington (320-185), Champlain Valley (330-230), and Essex (370-210) in Vermont.

"On Sunday Phil Tosteson substituted for an ailing Finola Prendergast and the team went undefeated with wins over Phillips Exeter, Londonderry and five other New Hampshire teams.
"Dylan, Travers and Finola were chosen for the Vermont all-star team at the Panasonic Academic Challenge at Disney World in June. The two Nicks will be part of the New Hampshire team at Disney.

"We all should be very proud of what the team members have accomplished this year!"
