Three Novice Quiz Bowl teams from North Babylon competed in the Hunter College High School SCOP Novice Quiz Bowl Tournament in Manhattan on Nov. 7. 

The A Team, consisting of sophomores Ryan Arranz, Brett Manzo, Matthew Pecoraro and Noah Rothstein (captain), went 8-4 and placed fourth overall for the day. Pecoraro scored fifth-highest as an individual player in the prelims and moved up to third place after 12 rounds. Rothstein was the seventh top-scoring individual in the prelims. 

The Novice B Team, comprised of sophomore Richard Joyce (captain) and freshmen Elpida Manolas, Lily Meehan and Junior Keiara Salomon, had a great day as well, going 6-6. Joyce placed third in the prelims individually and seventh overall after 12 rounds. 

North Babylon's C Team — freshmen Mehak Chohan, Tian Coltrain and Shaylee Schwartzwalder (captain) — got to compete in their first quiz bowl ever and had a great experience. 

Congratulations to our Novice players!
