The 2000 State and National Champion Team


    The 2000 Dwight D. Eisenhower High School Quiz Bowl Team was perhaps one of the best high school teams ever assembled. Led by Junior Kevin Roth, the team won two state championship tournaments and the American Scholastic Championship Networks' National Tournament of Champions. The team also placed second at the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence's National Scholastic Championship and fourth at the National Academic Quiz Tournament's High School National Championship Tournament. The team represented Michigan at the Panasonic Academic Challenge at Disney World and placed seventh. Captain Kevin Roth was the top all-star at the NAQT HSNCT.  Below are several pictures and newspaper articles about the team.
