Inter-Borough Lit Quiz Winners

Academic

Our ‘infamous five’ put in a solid performance throughout whilst other teams fell down on the set text questions or fiendish picture round.

After their fine performance in the borough round, our senior lit quiz team (Zac Procter, Ye Ji Hwang, Kate Scott-Taylor, Ellena Eley, Izzy Jones a sixth team member Freya King, who helped the team into the final but was ill on the day) are now the proud holders of the Inter-borough Lit Quiz Cup, having fought off stiff competition from Tiffin, LEH, Hampton, Holy Cross and Claremont to win the ‘senior’ competition for Year 9 and 10 students.

With no idea of their position going into the final round, our book brains maintained their composure to battle valiantly through a wide-ranging buzzer round incorporating Greek mythology, Paddington and the three musketeers.

Each team member came away with a book prize and the new-found grammatical discovery of a pangram. It is sadly the last time that Zac, Kate and Ye-ji will be able to compete so we thank them for being such stalwarts, putting in countless hours of prep whilst also finding the time to coach the Junior Team. We will be looking for new recruits to defend the title next year.
