The Quiz Bowl team will compete again this year on the television show “It’s Academic” on  Saturday, November 19 at 2:30 pm. The team, coached by assistant principal Mr. Benjamin includes seniors Alex Crute and Harry Warren and junior Eric Wright. The event will be taped at the NBC 4 Studio. Washington Latin will compete against Fairfax County schools Robinson and Annandale, and will of course bring our own personal cheering section in the form of Ms. Nevola and the Jazz Band, which will perform. The 55-year old show is the longest running game show in the history of television. Last year the team, including Crute and Wright,  lost a very close contest with Edison High School in Montgomery County. Latin is the first public charter school to ever compete on the show.
