ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County middle schoolers put their brains to the test Thursday. Four middle schools were represented with teams at the District Quiz Bowl.
The teams were asked questions from various topics.
Robert Cross Middle Magnet School's team took home the trophy. Fifteen students make up the team, and the captain says they studied over the summer and have been practicing everyday for two months
"I am somewhat surprised. I was surprised I was captain, as well. I just hope we can continue doing that through regionals and state," said Team Captain Ryan Moore.
The event is part of a national middle school competition.
All four teams will advance to the regional round, which will be held at Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus.
