CC Quiz Bowl Hosts 12th Annual Middle School Kickoff Tournament

On Saturday, December 9, 2023, Catholic Central High School Quiz Bowl hosted the 12th Annual Detroit Catholic Central Middle School Kickoff Tournament, featuring 26 teams from 11 different schools and approximately 130 5th through 8th graders. Teams were quizzed on 640 questions.  

“Our kickoff tournament is an excellent way for middle school students who have never played quiz bowl to be introduced to the sport. It's a good tournament for players and teams that have experience to test themselves against the best middle schoolers in the state. It's also a way for our current players to give back to the quiz bowl community and sometimes to the schools they have come to CC from,” stated CC’s Academic Team Head Coach, Mr. Chris Gismondi ’00.
