District 191’s new middle school quiz bowl teams off to good start

Quiz Bowl teams are new this year at the three middle schools in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 and recently teams from Metcalf and Nicollet middle schools competed at the EMERALD (Edgewood Middle Entirely Raucous Academic Learning Decathlon) tournament hosted by Edgewood Middle School in Mounds View.  

“We had an excellent showing and I'm exceptionally proud of our participants,” said Coach Les Moffitt. “I love watching our students compete against and defeat other schools!”
