Koutsoukos brothers qualify for national Quiz Bowl tournaments

With their third-place finish at the Fall Academic Tournament at Yale University on Sept. 16, Wilton High School sophomore Alexander Koutsoukos and Middlebrook seventh grader Lukas Koutsoukos have qualified to compete in two Quiz Bowl national championships next year.

Quiz Bowls are competitive, academic, interscholastic activities for students, sponsored by National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT), during which teams use buzzers to answer questions about science, math, history, literature, mythology, geography, social science, current events, sports and popular culture.

Alexander and Lukas make up the Wilton A Quiz Bowl team.

They will compete in the 2018 NAQT High School National Championship Tournament in Atlanta in May, and the 2018 PACE National Scholastic Championship in Washington, D.C., in June.
