There was a written round of 40 questions followed by 4 oral rounds of 35 questions each prior to the final championship round.
Our team (Tariq Ravasia, Stella Brown, Teagan Canady, and Sam Morris) competed against schools of all sizes during the preliminary rounds and then won the Small School division in the classification championship round 16-6-2. They also tied for 2nd for most points overall regardless of classification with 90 points total. Congratulations, Dragons!
