  • Last Saturday, Jesuit had three teams compete in the Mt. Carmel Invitational Quiz Bowl Tournament against teams from across Louisiana and Mississippi. The C team of Klein Konrad, Mack Thomas, Evans Wise, Elijah Perrien, and Arthur Meade, most of whom were playing in their first-ever tournament, made it through the preliminary rounds in the top half of their division but fell in a tough playoff bracket. The B team of James Redmann, Carter Rigney, Thomas Schmitt, and Aidan Wang finished as the third team in their division entering the playoffs. There, they scored a win against the Jesuit C team but lost in their next match by a single question. Even so, their performance earned them the top JV team award, given to the best team of sophomores or below. Finally, the A team of Max Daly, Lee Reymond, Wade Rogers, Derek Tsang, and Christian Thomas recovered from an early loss in the preliminary rounds and stormed back in the playoffs to win the tournament, including two exciting wins that came down to the final question. In addition, Wade Rogers won an award as the highest individual scorer for the day.
