Fairland proves victor in recent quiz bowl
ROME TOWNSHIP — Teams of students from South Point and Fairland middle schools faced off in a quiz bowl meet on Wednesday.
The students competed in a test of their knowledge of literature, math, history, geography, science and government from a list of questions, which were sealed before the game.
Fairland won both rounds, 75-42 and 59-53, Kara Speed, who teaches 7th grade English at the school, said.
Speed serves as the Quiz Bowl Hero for the school and organized the event.
The teams competed in a lightning round, in which they buzzed in answers, as well as a group round in which they conferred to determine the answer to a question presented to them.
Speed said Fairland’s team has seven regular matches this year.
The event serves as a warm-up to a larger meet early next year. Teams from across the area will compete in a countywide event on Jan. 5 at Ohio University Southern in Proctorville.
