Among the many teams at Port Huron High, there is one team that is often overlooked. The quiz bowl team. Nathan Allen ‘18 wants that to change.
“I want them to know it’s not just for nerds, it’s for everyone.” he said. The questions are not just about math and science, they are on a variety of topics. A lot of students think the questions are beyond their knowledge, but many people are surprised by what they know.
Although the quiz bowl team has gotten more attention from freshman this year, many upperclassmen have not showed any interest. Allen blames this on the recruitment process. “I feel that not a lot of people know about what quiz bowl is in the first place.” he said. “I feel like we need to reach out to people more.”
The quiz bowl team needs all types of students. Don’t be afraid to answer questions. Besides,it’s not all about how many questions each person can answer individually, it’s about how well the team works together.
