Our annual high school quiz bowl tournament, The Ironmaster, was held on Thursday-March 9, 2017 at Ohio University-Southern. All eight of the high schools in our county competed in the double elimination tournament. Winning this tournament allows one team from our county to advance to the regional competition.
This tournament marks the end of our high school quiz bowl regular season where each of our teams play each other weekly from November thru February at various host schools.
This year, not only did South Point High School Quiz Bowl team go undefeated in our Ironmaster Tournament, but they also hold the title of our “Regular Season Winner” this year with a perfect record of 7-0. The South Point team is coached by Mr. Allen Perry. Along with being the quiz bowl coach, Mr. Perry teaches chemistry at South Point High School.
Both Mr. Perry and his team were awarded plaques for winning the Ironmaster Tournament along with being our regular season winners as well. These plaques were provided by the ESC in recognition for being an excellent coach, and the team for having an outstanding, undefeated 2016-2017 season.
