The Conway High School Quiz Bowl Team has won its second big tournament of the year and is currently undefeated.
The Varsity team won the Atkins tournament in October, and won the Huntsville invitational last weekend.
The JV team placed fourth of 26 teams at Atkins and 5th at Huntsville.
Their coach, Paula McKee, says the defending state champs are ready to take the title again this year.
"My juniors and seniors are the same ones that I took to nationals when they were in the eighth and ninth grades," says McKee. "They won that tournament that year and have been winning since then. They actually assure the success of future teams as the underclassmen learn from them in practice. I love to watch them interact."
Matt Sweere, Tim Ablondi, Zelda Engeler-Young and Joe Coker lead the varsity team.
Other members who competed are Blaine Booher, Jesus Orellano, Jack Lester, Tanner Rith, Hunter Davis, Matt Depner, Ryan Swan, Megan Hasse, Peter Grant, Juan Melendez, Maddie Moss, and Savannah Raup.
The team will compete again December 5th in the Benton Invitational.
