The Academic Quick recall team completed their season at Providence High on Friday February 26th at the deanery championship. The team consists of students from 6th, 7th and 8th grades. They were chosen in early January after taking a test and scoring high among their peers. They practiced twice weekly for 7 weeks before attending the tournament. Quick recall is basically questions in the subjects of math, science, spelling, literature, current events and religion. The coaches and students have no idea what will be asked so they study all types of questions and lists found on the internet and in books. The teams use a buzzer system in the competition so teamwork is absolutely necessary. This year our 7th graders made it to the final competition placing second. Our 8th grade team won their competition for the 3rd time, they won last year as 7th graders and their first year as 6th graders. We are extremely proud of our Academic Quick recall team for all of their accomplishments. Special thanks to Sherry Dorner, Tricia Wall, Jill Scott and Nicole Shavers for coaching this year!
