North Babylon sent two teams to compete at the Hunter College High School SCOP Novice Quiz Bowl Tournament in New York City on Saturday November 1st, 2014. This is a tournament geared towards newer quiz bowl players who have a year or less of experience competing in these kinds of tournaments. The North Babylon A Team, comprised of Junior and Team Captain Zachary T, Sophomore Haggai A, and Freshmen Matthew P and Noah R placed second overall out of 18 teams from throughout the tri-state area. Haggai was the 7th highest individual point scorer at the tournament, with an average of 54.5 points per game, and Zachary T was 11th, with an average of 46.5 points per game. This was the first quiz bowl tournament Matthew and Noah had ever competed in and they helped contribute to each and every victory. They are looking forward to achieving more success throughout this school year on the national quiz bowl circuit! Great job A Team!
