In the Bible, the number 7 is special, and for North Clinton Bible quiz teams, the seventh Bible quiz meet on Sunday, March 8, also proved to be special.
North Clinton’s Flaming Swords won all three matches and was the highest-scoring team in League B, averaging 133 points. After two meets with two leagues of round-robin quizzing, North Clinton’s other team, Journey, and West Clinton’s Forbidden Fruits finished with the best win/loss record of 5-1 in League B.
Forbidden Fruits averaged 113 points on Sunday, and Ewe Lambs from Poplar Ridge averaged 100.
Lockport’s Innocent and Sand Ridge’s Endures tied in League A, finishing 5-1. Both also were the top-scoring teams Sunday, averaging 143 and 147, respectively. The Greater Light from Sonrise averaged 122.
A fun match Sunday featured some of the more experienced quizzers using Pettisville Missionary’s jump seats instead of traditional handheld buttons. Quizzers had fun experiencing something new “and intimidating.”
Thirteen youth quizzed out in all their matches: Jacque Seigneur from North Clinton; Emily Short, West Clinton; Elise Sauder and Caleb McQuillin, Central; Luke Graber, Eliot Nofziger and Seth Nofziger, Lockport; Ciara Caldwell and Tiannah Sheets, Poplar Ridge; Collin Stamm and Whitney Stamm, Sand Ridge; Jacob Karnes and Carly Sprow, Sonrise.
Area teams gather once more on Sunday, March 22, 2 p.m. for a local tournament at Central Mennonite Church. Archbold High School is the site of a 79- team tournament, March 27- 29, as the Archbold area hosts teams from two other Ohio areas plus teams from Pennsylvania and Virginia.
