MHS wins Regional Quiz Bowl Championship
Manila hosted the 2008 Regional Quiz Bowl on Friday, March 14. The quiz bowl competition, originally scheduled for Saturday, March 8, was postponed due to bad weather.
Gerri McCann, coach of the Manila team, expressed her appreciation to the Manila Assembly of God for allowing the competition to be held at the church.
Competing in the all day tournament were Manila, Marmaduke, Hoxie, and Corning.
Manila won first place; Hoxie won second place; and Marmaduke won third place.
Assisting Ms. McCann in the tournament were teachers and students Jimmie Puckett, Magan Priest, Dwight Booth, Cindy Bunch, Martha Lawrence, Scottie Reinhart, Amber Smith, Shonda Sparks, Kalyn Harris, Josh Henderson and Becca Carmichael.
"We also appreciate Tracey and Scotty Reinhart for providing hot pizza and refreshments for the students to purchase, "McCann said. "They donated the proceeds from the concession back to the Manila Quiz Bowl Team. We appreciate all of our volunteers who helped with the tournament."
The Manila Team will compete at the state level on April 1 at Mayflower.
