Friends of Quiz Bowl Coaches Poll


Feb. 29, 2024

High School Quiz Bowl Teams

Ranked in Midseason Coaches Poll

LITTLE ROCK — Little Rock Central, Russellville, Batesville Charter, Trumann, Mountain View, Haas Hall - Bentonville and Sacred Heart top their high school divisions, from 7A to 1A, respectively, in a midseason poll of participating Arkansas Governor’s Quiz Bowl Association (AGQBA) coaches.

The poll was administered by Arkansas Friends of Quiz Bowl, a nonprofit composed of alumni, coaches and others who support quiz bowl in Arkansas by, among other things, funding annual scholarships for quiz bowl players.

“By this time of the year, coaches and their teams have played in many invitational tournaments. The coaches' votes in this poll are their assessment of where they believe teams are before the Region tournaments on March 2,” said Paul Gray, president of the Arkansas Friends of Quiz Bowl board of directors. “As with other types of polls, the Region tournament and the State tournament on April 13th will determine who the top teams actually are. The top two teams will emerge at each State tournament and then play for the State Championships in seven classifications on Arkansas PBS on April 27."

Polls were taken in February in which all AGQBA high school coaches were asked to rank their divisional opponents, as determined by their classification in the Arkansas Activities Association (AAA). Weighted points were assigned to higher rankings. A composite score was generated from those weighted points to determine the highest ranking teams in each division.

Quiz bowl is an academic competition governed by the AGQBA under the administration of the Arkansas Activities Association. During games, players answer questions on a variety of academic topics such as literature, art, music, history, science and math to earn points. Games are structured such that teams must work collaboratively to answer some questions and must rely on the individual knowledge of each player to answer others.
