How about that Quiz Bowl?!

We're kinda good at this.

The team finished 15th at the NAQT Intercollegiate Tournament (ICT) in April of 2021. This was our second trip to the national championship tournament (the first was in 2014).

No big deal.

Senior Jakob Lippert finished 2nd in the country in individual scoring at the NAQT Intercollegiate Tournament (ICT). Nice one, Jakob. 

A little Wildcat QB history.

Our A squad's record at the last two ACF Fall tournaments is 17-4 

The team has won 7 tournaments in the last 5 years 🏆

Membership on the team includes lots of travel opportunities 🚌💨 to play against universities in the Great Lakes region. Did someone say road trip?!
