Who We Are - 

Quiz Bowl is a fun extracurricular activity that is currently being offered at WLHS. It is a game of questions and answers on a variety of topics, so if you know a little bit about many things or a lot about a specific topic, Quiz Bowl may be the after school activity for you!

Quiz Bowl is a team academic competition that tests students' knowledge of all school subjects and current events.  The game is played with lock out buzzers and two opposing teams of five players each.  Game play consists of toss-up and bonus questions.  Toss-up questions require an individual student to buzz in fastest with the correct answer thereby earning their team a bonus question on which they can confer and give a team answer for extra points.  Students in grades 9-12 are eligible to participate in Quiz Bowl. The regular season runs from October through February.  Whitmore Lake has fielded a team since the 1980s.

Regular season competitions begin in mid-November. We play against several other high school teams in the area— Manchester, Milan, Howell, Pinckney, Saline, Tecumseh, and in previous years, Dexter.  Practice is twice a week for approximately one hour directly after school. Our meets are once a week through January. The varsity team participates in the league tournament held in mid-February. Since Quiz Bowl is open to all high school students in grades 9-12, 8th grade students who are interested may participate in JV practices, but cannot compete in the actual competitions at this time.
