Three Greenhill Quiz Bowl teams competed at the TQBA Kickoff Classic, the first varsity high school tournament of the 2021-22 school year.
The dynamic duo of Neha Bachu '25 and Gabe Patel '22 competed in the novice division and had a very strong tournament, finishing fourth with a record of 5-3. They had a nice win over a St. Mark's team before barely losing to St. John's. A normal team size is four players, so these two really played well!
The varsity team of Gokulan Anand '22, Nikky Nandipati '24, Josh Rubel '22, and Shruti Siva '22 dominated, narrowly losing in the finals to Strake Jesuit and finishing as the runner up with a record of 11-1. It was a great tournament for this team right out of the gate and shows great promise for the season to come!
The Middle School team of Maya Jagsi '26, Aaron Kuang '26, Kate Ponnambalam '26, Evans Senvalds '26 (Captain) was the only middle school team in the tournament. They advanced to the playoffs and reached the quarterfinals, where they lost to Greenhill A. They finished tied for fifth place and qualified for High School Nationals.
Congratulations to these students on their hard work!
