Both Cowley College Quiz Bowl teams qualify for nationals

Cowley A and B teams

For the first time in the program’s history, both Cowley College Quiz Bowl teams have qualified for nationals. The teams accomplished this feat while competing at the sectional tournament held Saturday, January 21, in Overland Park, KS.

Both Cowley A and B teams had solid performances as the Cowley A team came in second place out of nine teams and was the only squad to beat the top team at the sectional, East Central Community College (MO).

Cowley B tied for fifth place and defeated Cowley A during one round of the tournament, which may have helped them qualify for the national tournament, which will take place February 24-25 in Rosemont, IL.

Thirty-six players competed, and Zane Hubble came in third place individually and received an award. The following Cowley students also played well individually: Spencer MacLaughlin (sixth), Justin Aggson (eighth), Danny Ball (10th), Elias Robson (18th), Katya Crow (19th), Aigiza Nasyrova (28th), Peyton Williams (30th), and Shaybree Hanes (32nd).

Results can be found at naqt.com/stats. The green highlights are the teams who earned first place at their sectional tournament and are guaranteed a spot at nationals.

Cowley College’s Ayden Young served as a scorekeeper at the event. Pictured is the Cowley A Team consisting of Elias Robson, Shaybree Hanes, Zane Hubble, and Justin Aggson.
