AT students

The 10 teams that will compete at the 2014 NATA Quiz Bowl in Indianapolis have been determined. Scheduled for 5 p.m. on June 27 at the convention, the Quiz Bowl is now in its sixth year and features teams from each district in a two-round Jeopardy-style competition. More than bragging rights will be on the line as the winning team receives $1,000 toward the school’s athletic training program or club. The second and third place teams will receive $500 and $250 respectively.
