Quiz Bowl season gets strong start
FALLS VILLAGE — The Lee H. Kellogg School’s Quiz Bowl Team placed third in the Charter Oak Scholastic Open on Jan. 29. The inaugural academic competition was held at the Middlesex Middle School in Darien and drew teams from as far away as Boston. The Kellogg team was captained by eighth-grader Emily Hennessey and included Riley Simmons, Julie Horowitz and Olivia Wadsworth. Kellogg won six of their nine games by quickly buzzing in to answer questions such as: “In 2010, this air force captain was deployed in a rescue to a gas rig in Morecambe Bay. This alumnus of the University of St. Andrews became the Duke of Cambridge. Name this man, second in line to the British Throne and husband of Kate Middleton.” The Region One Quiz Bowl season begins on Feb. 29.
