Hearty congratulations to our North Texas District Junior Bible Quiz Champions for the 2017-2018 quiz season: KEEPERS OF THE COMMAND from First at Firewheel in Garland, Texas. This team was undefeated in the advanced division and averaged 210.0 points per round, securing the top spot at this year's District Finals. They will go on to compete at this year's National JBQ Festival held this June in Tucson, Arizona. Congratulations, Keepers of the Command!
Narrowly missing the top spot was GUARDIANS OF THE GOSPEL - another team from First at Firewheel in Garland. Averaging an impressive 212.8 points per round, they even outscored the champs!
Rounding out the top five teams were: CHAINS BREAKERS from Freedom Church (Carrollton), THUNDER & LIGHTNING from the Trinity Church (Cedar Hill), and BIBLE BUZZIN' BROS from Trinity (Cedar Hill).
The top five teams from our District Championship have qualified to compete at this year's South Central Regional Finals in April. At that tournament, up to three of those North Texas District JBQ teams (besides our District Champions) may also earn a spot to join KEEPERS OF THE COMMAND competing at the National JBQ Festival.
This year's Top Individual was CHIDIE ECHEFU from Keepers of the Command, averaging 97.1 points per round with 4 quiz-outs. Great job, Chidie!
Congratulations to every North Texas quizzer, coach, official, and parent who participated in this year's quiz season. Not everyone will earn a first-place trophy, but everyone will reap eternal benefits by having made God's Word a big part of their life. Junior Bible Quiz rocks!
