Wheatley Brainstormers Shine in Regional Quiz Bowl Competitions!

Congratulations to the Wheatley Brainstormers Club! For the first time in school history, both the Varsity and the Junior Varsity teams have advanced to the Final Competition in Regional Quiz Bowl.

Regional Quiz Bowl is a series of trivia competitions that takes place each month across Long Island. Fifty-six teams from Long Island were pitted against each other in a series of five regular season games. The top sixteen teams in the Varsity and Junior Varsity divisions advance to the Final Competition.

  • The Junior Varsity Team finished the regular season as the highest ranked team in all of Long Island. The team went 5-0 in the regular season and is looking forward to defending its number 1 overall seed in the Final Competition. The Junior Varsity Team is composed of:
  • Christopher Shen (Captain, 12th grade)
  • Gabriel Besada (12th grade)
  • Jake Williams (12th grade)
  • John Li (10th grade)
  • Vedant Singh (9th grade)
  • Rahul Ajmera (8th grade)

The Varsity Team, competing against stiffer competition, finished the regular season with a 4-1 record and will be the thirteenth seed in the final competition. The Varsity Team consists of seniors:

  • Mohammad Khanzada (Captain)
  • Luke Cuomo
  • Ashwin Reddy
  • Arihant Jain
  • Andrew Zuckerman
  • Jake Williams

Both teams are coached by Joseph Crotty.

The teams will be competing in the Final Competition at Plainview Old Bethpage later this year.  We wish them the best of luck.

(Thanks to Mr. Crotty for the write-up and the photos!)
