Quiz BowlSponsored by NCASAQuiz Bowl is an academic competition in which two teams of four students compete head to head using a buzzer system to be the first to answer questions read by a moderator. The fast-paced format tests the combined prowess of the teams to determine the ultimate winner. Mr. Hamilton coaches the Atkins Quiz Bowl team. At Regionals, the 2018-19 team beat the Early College of Guilford, one of the best teams in the country, but lost to them at the state tournament to finish as state champion runner-up. They even took their first trip to Nationals!
