Southeast Bible Quiz Association Results for October 29 Quiz Meet

Yesterday afternoon, the Southeast Bible Quiz Association held the third quiz meet of the 2016-2017 Bible quiz season. The event took place at the Temple Baptist Academy campus in Powell, TN. It turned out to be a very exciting event. The field of teams included a team from West Park Baptist church, a team from Rhea County TN and two teams from Temple Baptist Church.

This month, there were several close quizzes. In the first round Rhea County (Joshua Jouben, Jadon Jouben, Jonathan Jouben, Jr., JuliAnn Jouben, Karis Kroeker and Jonathan Jouben, Sr.) faced West Park Baptist. The team from West Park Baptist had two quizzers that were called in to work so they were short-handed. As a result, Carson Balka sat in to form a tough two man team. It is extremely difficult to win with a two man team because quizzers quiz out with five correct answers and four incorrect answers. They would have to quiz almost a perfect quiz match to win. However, West Park Baptist was looking very good with a 190 to 180 lead on question 18. At that point, JuliAnn Jouben stepped up for Rhea County and knocked down questions 19 and 20 to win a very tight quiz match. In the second round, Temple Courageous (Caleb Hancock, Johnny Hancock and Luke Thompson) faced Rhea County. Temple Courageous raced to an early 60 to 20 point lead on question four. It then became a back and forth match until it was tied 140 to 140 on question fourteen. At that point, JuliAnn Jouben quizzed out with a bonus and Rhea County fought their way to a 250 to 190 victory. In the final round, Rhea County faced Temple Endurance (Kierstin Balka, Trevor Proffitt and David Thompson). This became a battle for the Team of the Month trophy as both teams came to the quiz match undefeated. Temple Endurance raced to an early lead as they answered the first three questions correctly. At that point, Rhea County came to life and worked to an 80 to 80 tie on question 8. The quiz match then became a back and forth match with a tied score on questions fourteen, sixteen and eighteen. Going into the final question any team could still win. JuliAnn Jouben then won the jump and answered correctly to win the Team of the Month trophy for Rhea County.

There were four different quizzers that quizzed out forward with five correct answers in a single quiz match and won a Quiz Out Achievement Ribbon. They are as follows:
1. Scott Firebaugh – West Park Baptist
2. Caleb Hancock – Temple Courageous
3. JuliAnn Jouben – Rhea County
4. Trevor Proffitt – Temple Endurance

The Quizzer of the Month award was won in convincing fashion by JuliAnn Jouben from Rhea County this month.
I am attaching the team results and individual results for your review. It is very encouraging to see the time that these quizzers and their parents have invested in God’s Word, and it is exciting to think about the way God will use it in their lives in the years to come.

In Christ and In His Word,
Michael Balka
