OWC Brain Bowl Team Wins Regionals, Heads to State Tournament
The Okaloosa-Walton College Brain Bowl Team became the Florida Community College Activities Association (FCCAA) Panhandle Regional Champions on February 2 at a tournament held at OWC. The team will progress to the State Brain Bowl Tournament at Chipola College March 27-29 in Marianna, Florida.
OWC Brain Bowl Team members who competed were Danielle Stephen of Freeport, an OWC Collegiate High student; and OWC students Gabriel Hernandez of Niceville; Andrew Birr of Fort Walton Beach; John Beirne of Niceville, Captain; and David Meyer of Crestview.
The OWC team competed against six other state community college teams at the tournament including Chipola College Gold and Blue teams, North Florida Community College, Gulf Coast Community College, Pensacola Junior College, and Tallahassee Community College. OWC finished with a record of 4-2 during the round robin competition and then won the championship round to bring home the title. The championship round was exciting with a close win over the Chipola Blue team.
The OWC Brain Bowl competes on college-level questions in the areas of natural science, social science, humanities, and mathematics. Openings are available for new team members who are enrolled for at least 6 credit hours at OWC and scholarships are available.
