Wow!

October Stats

 

Good job team, you have done it

yet again, you have advanced

another spot to become the

11th ranked team out of 34!

I just thought I’d take a

moment to look back on

this season before we press

on to the last two quizzes

of this year.

As we came into this year we

started off with the biggest quiz

team that I have ever had the

privileged to be a part of.

On top of that we would be

competing among 34 other

teams!  In the previous two

 

November Stats

years that I had been Bible

Quizzing there had been

only two to twelve teams.

So when the stats from the

first quiz in October came

out I was excited that the

team placed so high, but

wondered if it was just

beginner’s luck.

From observing other

winning teams

we noticed that one of

the main keys

to winning was the

ability to interrupt

December Stats

But when the stats from the

November quiz were released

the team stayed steady at 13th place.

  When we saw the difference

between the number of points that

we had over the teams in front

wondered if we could rise to 10th,

Taylor even said the team could

possibly make 8th.  From observing

other winning teams we noticed

that one of the main keys to

winning was the ability to interrupt,

so we started practicing the art of

“mind reading”.

_______________________

This was the first

time in three years

that the team had

ever moved up in rank!

January Stats

_______________________

In December the team moved up

to 12th!  This was the first

time in three years that the team

had ever moved up in rank!

But we were met with lots of

adversity with hectic schedules,

practice time changes, holidays,

new toys and games,

lots of verses etc.  Yet all the other

teams faced the same adversity,

so the January quiz would reveal

who the teams were.

And when the dust settled and

all the points were tallied,

Rising Up found themselves

in 11th place!

So now what?  Are we

as a team interested in trying to

break into the top ten teams?

Are we as a team willing

to do what it will take?

Because the number one thing

that it will take is to put away

our individual pride, and

pick up pride in our team,

pride in the other quizzers

around us in our same jersey.

We’ll be talking about our

strategy going forward at the

practices which in January will

be on the 17th, 21st, 24th, and 28th
