Top three teams
Eight teams from Sutherland, Hershey and Paxton competed in a recent quiz bowl at the Sutherland United Methodist Church.
The Sacrificers from Sutherland Methodist Church took first place. The Bible Brainiacs of Hershey's Maria Lutheran Church took second. The Wild Stallions of the Hershey-Sutherland Baptist Church were third.
This was an inaugural event and the competition was fast paced and exciting, said Barb Baldridge of Hershey.
Baldridge said Ja Welsh did a fabulous job as moderator to keep the crowd engaged, entertained, and the teams on task.
The organizers gave special thanks to the Sutherland Chamber and the Wal-Mart Distribution Center for sponsoring this event. The quiz bowl was held in mid-March.
The top three teams are pictured.
