The Ellicottville Central School Quiz Bowl Team participated in the National Academic Competition in Washington, DC over the first weekend of June.
They qualified for the competition back in February when they won the Scholastic Challenge in Portville.
At Nationals, they beat teams from three different states and were competitive in all six matches, but came up 25 points shy of going to the playoff round.
A great job was done by Shelby Toth, Parker Rieman, Victor Rieman, Robert Spell, Will Timkey, Kaitlyn Smith, and Louisa Benatovich. The team thanks the Ellicottville Teachers Association and the Ellicottville Parent-Teacher Organization for their support of the trip.
