The Teaneck Community Charter School Team A is the 2016 NAQT New Jersey State Middle School Quiz Bowl Champions!
The team, consisting of captain Mia Burger (who finished 4th in the individual placements), Michelle Burger, Malcolm Capers, Ethan Schulman, and Sara Mustafa, defeated the best teams from across the state of New Jersey. Their incredibly competitive play saw them finish the tournament undefeated and clinching the school's first state championship. On an even bigger note, this was not only the school's first state championship, but also the first year of the state tournament! That's right, TCCS is the FIRST state quiz bowl champion!
With their finish, the A team has also qualified, for the third consecutive year, for the NAQT National Finals in Atlanta, Georgia!
This final tournament of the regular season was a great showing by all of our players and we could not be prouder of their efforts this year. The 2015-2016 Quiz Bowl team members included Mia Burger, Michelle Burger, Malcolm Capers, Ethan Schulman, Sara Mustafa, Ben Zatz, Dina Scott, Evelyn Pierce, Leena Memon, and Summer Helm.
