Quitman High School’s Quiz Bowl team is open to all students by tryout in late August. Students try out and teachers evaluate their overall academic performance from previous years. The first big event each year for the quiz bowl team is the Bobcat Math League. This is a regular season of “mathematics play” where the team participates in both home and away games in order to secure a spot in the playoffs (hosted by JCJC). Our team won the district championship in 2012-2013 and had a winning season in 2013-2014. Once the “season of math” is over, students participate in various invitational tournaments that cover a wide variety of questions from mathematics and science to sports and pop culture.
