Pinewood Prep's quiz bowl team places at nationals

Posted: Updated:

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- For the students of Pinewood Prep's Quiz Bowl Team, summer started a little later than normal, but the wait was well worth it.

Instead of heading off to the beach or taking up the controllers on their favorite video game system, the group of young academics competed and placed in the top 10 in the National High School Quiz Bowl.

"Overall, the tournament was a great experience and a wonderful opportunity to meet other academic teams from around the nation," said team co-captain Marshall Simmons. "As a team, we had a great time and set the bar even higher for next year."

 Their performance granted them an automatic invitation to next year's competition.

There were more than 130 teams competing in this year's event.

Pinewood Prep's High School Quiz Bowl team members include co-captains Austin Pahl and Marshall Simmons, with juniors Sean Carter and Logan Dwyer.  Team coaches are Wendy Girgan, Stephanie Todaro and Stuart McMullan.
