Senca/Wyandot/Put-in-Bay/Sandusky Area High School Quiz Bowl League had its double-elimination tournament at First Lutheran Church.
Columbian lost to Clyde in the beginning of the tournament. It was the only loss the entire season, said coach Len Donaldson.

Columbian also took home the trophy for North Division winner with a record of 8-0.
"We are really happy," senior Scott Bryant said. "It is my first year competing in the quiz bowl and I had a lot of fun and I am glad that I could help lead the team to as many victories as possible."
"Each member of the team has strong points and we worked well together as a team in every round," senior Chris Daniel said.
"The loss to Clyde kind of had the team stressing out, but it gave us the confidence to win in the end," Daniel said.
