One hundred quizzers on 20 teams from 11 participating churches started the 2011 Bible Quiz season at West Clinton Mennonite Church, Sunday, Jan. 9.

It is the second-largest number of teams since the 1970s to participate in NW Ohio Bible Quiz, which includes Fulton, Williams, and Defiance counties.

New churches this year include Eastland Baptist, Bryan; First Baptist, Stryker; and Living Hope Free Methodist, West Unity. Also participating are Central, Lockport, North Clinton, Tedrow, West Clinton and Zion Mennonite churches, Poplar Ridge Church of the Brethren, and Sonrise Community Church.

“Whatever” from North Clinton won all three matches, averaging 158 points, to claim the first-place traveling trophy. Members are Kira and Ross Andre, Devyn McClay, Jacque Seigneir, and April and Galen Short.

Two Lockport teams, “Sad Goats” and “Fierce,” won prizes for averaging 150 and 149 points, respectively. “Sad Goats” members are Cara Foor, Hannah Groeneweg, Melissa Kinkaid and Hope Nofziger. “Fierce” members are Ryan King, Tony King, Philip Nafziger and Eliot Nofziger.

This year’s material is the stories of Joseph found in Genesis 37 and 39-50, and the book of Esther.
