Over the Memorial Day weekend, three Jesuit quiz bowl teams attended the National Academic Championships held at the Hampton Inn Convention Center in New Orleans. At the end of the preliminary games, which lasted 13 hours on Sunday, two Jesuit teams survived to continue on to Monday’s single elimination rounds. The varsity team, composed of captain and senior Andrew Souther, junior Eddie Redmann, senior Keegan Rooney, and senior Preston Warwick, went 4 and 1 and the JV team of captain Dexter Webster, Matthew Dowling, Bradley Fugetta, and Christopher Vuong went 5 and 1. However both teams were eliminated in Monday’s playoffs, with the JV making it into the semi-finals.

Also participating in the tournament was a second JV team consisting of captain and sophomore Nicolas Cibilich, junior William Brown, sophomore Daniel Sartin, and freshman Dominic Stoner.

Coach Ron Rossi is proud of these two teams as he has been of all the Jesuit teams he has coached for the past 32 years.
