The UNT Quiz Bowl Team placed first in Division II (out of six teams) and was the third best team of the day, doing better than one of the Division I teams, at the NAQT South Sectional Championship Tournament on February 9 at Rice University in Houston, Texas.

The UNT team members are Ethan Seal, Roman Madoerin, Sebastian King and Spencer Taylor.

Due to their success at the NAQT South Sectional, the team has been invited to compete in the 2019 Intercollegiate Championship Tournament for the first time. The tournament will be held on April 6 in Rosemont, Illinois.

Quiz Bowl is a head-to-head game on a variety of topics with a buzzer system used to answer questions. UNT hosts a tournament on campus each fall for UNT students, which is how students are selected for the NAQT South Sectional. The four current UNT team members also are members, and a few even are officers, of the Quiz Bowl Club, which is a student organization on campus.

The team members practice weekly, which has paid off with a great win for UNT.
