This week’s Bergstrom Stateline Quiz Bowl is an Ogle County rivalry, Stillman Valley vs Oregon.
Both schools went pretty deep in year one of the Quiz Bowl, but got knocked out early last year. In season three, they meet in the first round to see who’ll advance to the field of 16. One coach says the different Quiz Bowl format does have an impact on their performance.
“The lightning round is definitely different,” said Oregon Coach Danyel Larsen. “The volleyball round is different. So, we have to practice that idea a little bit with them and talk to them about strategy.”
“The Oregon is pretty good,” said Stillman Valley Captain Jaron Johnson. “I expect it will be a pretty even match for most of the game.”
