Spring Valley Academic Quiz Team Opens the Season at the Carlanna Hendrick Academic Tournament (CHAT)

Spring Valley’s Quiz team had a very impressive showing at CHAT, hosted by the SC Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics. Spring Valley was one of only three traditional public high school teams to compete in an exceptionally talented field of 16 academic quiz teams from across the Carolinas. Spring Valley went undefeated for the five matches in the preliminary round and was the only non-specialized high school to advance to the championship round. In the championship round, Spring Valley won two of five matches, losing two close ones by scores of 250-265 and 200-245, ultimately placing 4th overall, one spot shy of a trophy.

Team members (from left to right in picture) included Anna Rassolov (12), Max Berg (11), Fionn O’Connor (11), Hunter Shissias (12), and Michael Papaletsos (12). The team is coached by Dr. Michelle Wyatt. A huge thank you to Dr. Stephanie Berg for serving as an additional chaperon and scorekeeper for the team. Finally, the entire Academic Quiz Club would like to thank the Spring Valley Education Foundation for funding the purchase of their buzzer system used for practices every Friday during lunch. New quiz club members are always welcome!
