The Conway Junior High Quiz Bowl teams took first and third places in the 7A West Central Regional Quiz Bowl Tournament last weekend.
Rodrigo McCarthy Galvan was the tournament MVP.
The wins advance the two teams to the State tournament later this month.
Quiz Bowl Coach Paula McKee says the team members on both teams have great dedication and commitment.
"They practice twice a week for 2 hours a practice, plus study their information outside of practice," said McKee. "We have attended 5 tournaments this year and have done really well in all of them."
The first quiz bowl team has brought home two first place and three second place wins, often playing without the full squad because of conflicts with other school activities. The second team has brought home four third place trophies, which McKee says bodes well for next year, since they are all 8th graders.
The State Tournament will be held at Searcy Junior High School on February 25th.
