This year, first place was awarded to both Grand Blanc and Flushing teams. Second place went to both New Lothrop and Owosso teams. The Montrose team took third place. The winners were recognized at a banquet held in Davison on Wednesday, Dec. 20. There are 10 teams competing in Division One.

New Lothrop advisor Jessica Marcet said the second-place finish was the best New Lothrop’s team had ever done in the Academic League. This year’s team members are sophomores Dominic Poletti and Kami Aiello, and juniors Jared Gasper and Charles Weber.

The Montrose team consists of five seniors, Nick Lee (captain), Max Groulx, Mariah Missentzis, Chris Potter and Shawn Scherlitz, who were competing for their fourth consecutive year. Sarah Jones and Molly Dunton are also on the varsity team, currently in their junior years.

Montrose Quiz Bowl advisor Carrie Prime said this is the best her team’s done in the past 10 years. Montrose’s junior varsity team took fourth place out of eight teams. That’s the best they’ve done in 10 years as well, Prime said.

Genesee County Intermediate School District sponsors the competition. The county is divided into two divisions geographically; New Lothrop and Montrose are both in Division One.
