The PHS Quiz Bowl team recently participated in what is likely to be the last trivia competition of the year. Two of the team’s sponsors and five members of the team traveled to Madison Central for the annual competition there. It’s a mass tournament with schools all over the state coming to compete.

Pearl was the first school to arrive and was forced to wait on Madison Central to get their affairs in order to allow Pearl to sign in. The competitors were given papers explaining both the rules of the competition and the respective teams competing and in what order.

The first team Pearl faced was Saint Joseph, followed by Jackson Prep, East Rankin, Terry, and Murrah. The scores were as follows in the same order: 305-70 Saint Joseph, 270-80 Jackson Prep, 240-105 East Rankin, 120-115 Terry, and 135-70 Murrah.

Each team was given a set of rules, paper, and pencils to be used throughout each match. Madison Central neglected to update the rules and therefore gave out-of-date rules to each team competing causing a cacophony of disagreements between sponsors and judges.

Mr. Faulkner, one of the two sponsors that went to the competition had this to say about the Madison Central tournament: “The Madison Central competition was enjoyable! Sometimes it felt like a root canal – other times it was like when school gets cancelled! Win some, lose some!”
