Jamestown High School Scholastic Bowl team wins at State Championship

Jamestown High School's Scholastic Bowl team won first place in class four at the 21st State Championship sponsored by the Virginia High School League.

Scholastic Bowl, also known as Quiz Bowl, is a quiz format competition that covers subjects from history to science to pop culture. Two teams of five players compete against each other answering questions.

There are two kinds of rounds during each game. The first has students answer questions by using a buzzer. Much like a game show, the first person to press the buzzer gets to answer. In the second, teams are given a question to answer, and only if they get it wrong is it given to the other team to solve.
