AHS Academic Quizbowl Team

  • Continuing a tradition of excellence spanning decades, and champions of Aiken County for the last FIVE years running, the AHS Academic Quizbowl Team always seeks to recruit talented new players! 

    If you enjoy and have a knack for "Jeopardy!" and other trivia games, you're insatiably curious about the world, you get a thrill out of team competition, and you like to have FUN, quizbowl might be your thing!

    We practice after school from 3:45-5:30 PM on Mondays and Fridays in C-212. Have questions? Visit or email Mr. Densmore at ddensmore@acpsd.net
