Quiz bowl team trying to score win for teammate with leukemia
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Are you smarter than a Keith Country Day middle schooler?
Your IQ has to be up there because these students are pretty smart.
Keith School is the only one in the area going to the National Quiz Bowl in Atlanta.
They're doing something special for a team member that can't go because he's having cancer treatments.
"The students actually designed these shirts in honor of their big brother James from quiz bowl," said their coach Kristen Burns. "We did them in orange for leukemia awareness. On the back we have a ribbon that says James Strong which is kind of the motto we've adopted for him."
The students leave for their trip Friday. The competition is on Saturday.
