Earlier this month Dayspring Assembly of God's Junior Bible Quiz team, EPIC earned 16th place at the National JBQ Festival.
They finished in sixth place in the second division, thus ranking them 16th in the country.
The two-day event near Dallas featured 80 teams from across the country vying for the championship.
Team EPIC consists of Shani Estep, Luke Kobylski, Johanna Slembarski and Annie Valantine.
The team compiled a 13-10 record overall in its 23 matches.
They prepared diligently for months in preparation for this event.
Individually Shani was 60th, Luke, 120th; Johanna 122th; and Annie was 236th. Luke also tied for 28th place for the most "Quiz Out." Quiz Outs are earned individually by a quizzer answering six of the 20 questions per round. Once they answer six, they earn an additional 10 points for their team.
The event featured competitors in the second through sixth grades.
Shani, Luke and Johanna are fifth graders and will compete in JBQ next year as well.
All four quizzers are from Bowling Green.
This is Dayspring's second trip to Nationals for JBQ in the last four years.
