Winners of Area Quiz Club Heat

We competed in an area heat of the national preparatory schools’ quiz club. Team 1 led by Bruno J with Matthew E., Aadi R and Anu B. led the field from the beginning and with five questions to go it was clear their lead was unreachable. Team 2, led by Dillon P with Ashwin A, Rhyseren T and Oliver P. were hot on their heels but gave us a few tense moments as they played leapfrog in the scoring with our hosts, Kingswood School. Eventually though, they pulled through with the final result being Sherborne 1 in first place with a score of 2060 points and Sherborne 2 in second place with 1710.  Sherborne 1 now qualify automatically for a semi-final place and it is just possible that with such a high score, Sherborne 2 may also qualify as one of the highest losers.

Congratulations to all our players both for their hard work every Monday lunchtime to get them this far and for their polite and respectful behaviour towards our hosts. Thank you also to Mrs Jesney and Mr Patel for their support of their teams. Collectively the adults showed more nerves than the pupils!
