Other Chipola Blue team members are: Katelyn Miller, William Singleton and Becca Delgado.  Miller finished seventh in individual scoring in the tournament.

The Chipola White Team finished eighth in the State Tournament and was led Wesley Chevillot who finished eighth in individual scoring. Other Chipola White members are: Bobby Gause, Jamie McCoy and Faith Tice.

Chipola will next play in the Intercollegiate Championship Tournament (ICT) in Chicago, April 12-13, as one of only six community colleges invited to the tournament. Chipola won its third straight NAQT (National Academic Quiz Tournament) Community College Championship Tournament in St. Louis on March 2. Based on that performance, Chipola received the number five seed in the ICT, behind only Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Brown.

Chipola math professor Stan Young is head coach of the Brain Bowl team with volunteer assistant Dr. Robert Dunkle. 

About Chipola’s run of six straight, Young says, "You can find intelligent people everywhere. We're in this small community college with just over 2,000 students and we’re competing with Ivy League schools. It just goes to show you that intelligence can come from anywhere. If you take that and put in a lot of hard work and prepare yourself, it just kind of shows you what you can do," Young said.
