The 2017-2018 MAHS Quiz Team placed higher in WGAL’s Brain Buster competition than any previous team in Middletown history. Out of the 38 high school teams from Adams, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Perry and York counties, MAHS placed fourth in the quiz tournament which airs on WGAL TV on Sunday afternoons. The team proudly walked away with a check for $1000 and the knowledge that they were the first MAHS to advance this far in the Brain Busters tournament.

ROUND ONE
MAHS vs. Ephrata
Middletown lost 315 to 355.
Fortunately, MAHS had the highest score among all the losing teams
so they earned a wild card spot and launched into a winning streak!

ROUND TWO
MAHS vs. Cumberland Valley
Middletown won 360-310!

ROUND THREE
MAHS vs. Elizabethtown
Middletown won 370 to 235!

ROUND FOUR, Quarterfinals
MAHS vs. Ephrata (again)
Middletown beat Ephrata 360 to 340!
However, this time Ephrata won the wild card spot so
guess who MAHS faced in the next round…

ROUND FIVE, Semi-finals
MAHS vs. Ephrata…for the THIRD TIME!
And after a grueling match, Middletown lost 410-270 ending their season.
