On March 25, Jesuit’s varsity quiz bowl team competed in the Louisiana Quiz Bowl Association’s state championship tournament held at LSU.

Team captain junior Caleb Rogers, backed by junior Eddie Redmann and seniors Mitchell Barras, Keegan Rooney and Preston Warwick, demolished all of their Division I competition, going undefeated and allowing no team closer than 145 points on a final score. Jesuit was also the only school that placed two of its team members on the MVP list—Rogers and Redmann.

Three competitions remain, two on a national level and one statewide. In fact, you can live stream The National WWII Museum’s Quiz Bowl Championship here on Thursday, March 30, at 6 p.m.

More tournament results can be found on the National Academic Quiz Tournaments website.
