Sewanee students win Quiz Bowl

Last week, eight students from Sewanee's Department of Earth and Environmental Systems vanquished competitors from the University of Kentucky and the University of Tennessee at the Quiz Bowl in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The annual event is run as a Jeopardy competition at the Kentucky-Tennessee Society of American Foresters convention. Questions cover fire science, soils, dendrology, environmental policy and other fields. Sewanee has won the bowl three times in the past eight years, and we will defend our title next year in Chattanooga. Seniors Frazier DeVaney, Gabrielle Marion, John Fisher and Becca Hannigan joined juniors Roy Flaig, Ellie Fowler, Logan Stockton and Victoria Schnaufer in the competition.
