Hearty congratulations to our North Texas District Junior Bible Quiz Champions for the 2016-2017 quiz season: TRIPLE THREAT from Trinity Church in Cedar Hill, Texas. This team was undefeated after eight rounds in the advanced division and averaged 232.50 points per round, securing the top spot at this year's District Finals. They will go on to compete at this year's National Festival held this June at their very own church! Congratulations, TRIPLE THREAT!
Rounding out the top three teams were two teams from First at Firewheel Church in Garland, Texas, both with a 6/2 record. GUARDIANS OF THE GOSPEL edged out TRANSFORMED SOULS for the number 2 spot by winning their head-to-head competition.
The top seven teams from our District Championship have qualified to compete at this year's South Central Regional Finals in Carrollton, Texas in April. At that tournament, up to three of those North Texas District JBQ teams (besides our District Champions) may also earn a spot to join TRIPLE THREAT competing at the National JBQ Festival.
This year's Top Individual was Joanne Ramesh from TRANSFORMED SOULS. Joanne averaged 103.75 points per round with 3 quiz-outs. Great job, Joanne! She and her team will be heading for Regional Finals in April.
Joanne Ramesh had a big day - she was also the winner of the coveted Master Seal Cup! Wow! That's quite an accomplishment - top individual quizzer and winner of the Master Seal competition. Congrats!
Our Ten Point Cup competition winner was another quizzer from TRANSFORMED SOULS - Faithful Iwuamadi. Congratulations, Faithful! We all know a good 10-point quizzer is often the key to a big win, and you did a fantastic job.
Congratulations to every North Texas quizzer, coach, official, and parent who participated in this year's quiz season. Not everyone will earn a first-place trophy, but everyone will reap eternal benefits by having made God's Word a big part of their life. Junior Bible Quiz rocks!
