The Thomas Jefferson High School History Bowl team swept its way to victory at the Western Washington Regional History Bowl competition on Nov. 17.

The team is comprised of students Julia Huber, Paul Jaquish, Elissa McDavid, Hanna Moor and Abigail Rood, and is coached by TJ history teacher Steven Hall. They went undefeated in seven rounds of play, culminating in a 10-point victory in the finals against Pope John Paul II High School.

On Feb. 16, the team will be competing at the state qualifier at Klahowya Secondary School in Silverdale, WA. Their “A” team has already qualified to compete at the National Championship in Washington, D.C., on April 28. TJ looks forward to the “B” team qualifying for Nationals as well as state.
