The Chadwick Academic Team competed in the Reeds Spring Invitational Tournament on Thursday, March 2, 2017.
The tournament featured some of the area’s biggest schools, including teams from Kickapoo, Branson, Nixa, Ozark, Willard, Republic, Logan-Rogersville, Springfield Catholic, Bolivar, and Buffalo. Of the twenty-two varsity teams in attendance, Chadwick was by far the smallest school represented. Nonetheless, Chadwick defeated Ozark in head-to-head competition and out-performed not only Ozark, but other big schools such as Logan-Rogersville, Reeds Spring, and Republic.
Chadwick junior Evan Davis was among the top 12 overall individual scorers with a total of 180 points. Fellow junior Tyler Gardner added 90 points; freshman Courtney Hill added 50 points; and senior Haley Farris added 30 points. Freshman Koltin Walker and junior Tori Garrison contributed in the bonus rounds.
Academic Team Coach Tyler Walker said, “When we signed up for the tournament, we had no idea we would be facing all the biggest schools around. When we got the list of teams a few weeks later, I was nervous about how we would do. We really did very well considering the quality of the competition. We didn’t bring home any trophies, but we didn’t get skunked either.”
The Academic Team will compete in the district quiz bowl tournament on Saturday, April 8, 2017, in Bakersfield.

The Chadwick Quiz Bowl Team competed in the Mark Twain Conference Tournament at Niangua on Tuesday, December 6, 2016. The Cardinals placed second overall, and first among public schools. School of the Ozarks placed first for the second year in a row.
On Wednesday, November 18, 2015, the Chadwick Quiz Bowl Team finished second overall in the Mark Twain Conference Tournament with a record of 3-1.
The tournament was a complete round robin of participating conference schools, and Chadwick’s only loss came at the hands of School of the Ozarks, who took top honors, finishing the tournament undefeated. SofO’s senior Coby Mitchell led the tournament in scoring overall, totaling 430 points.
Sophmores Evan Davis and Tyler Gardner led the Cardinals in scoring, racking up 180 and 140 points respectively. Junior Shyanne Sena added 50 more points; sophomore TJ Sanchez contributed 40 points; and sophomore Luke Walker and freshman Destiny Nelson each added 10 points.
Sophomores Kyrsten Armato, Cameron Kutchko, and Tori Garrison contributed to scoring in the bonus rounds.
Quiz bowl coach Tyler Walker said, “We’re a young team, mostly sophomores, and everybody was brand new to quiz bowl, so I thought we did very well. The kids were surprised, I think, at how well they did, but I knew they would do great.”
Team Captain Kyrsten Armato said she is ready for next year and says the key will be “more practice.”
Mr. Walker added, “If the core of this group stays interested and applies themselves, they’ll be quite a force by the time they are seniors.”
