Quiz Bowl Silver Medalists

Five Northbrook High student athletic trainers returned to campus last month with a second place victory in the first-time Quiz Bowl held during the Greater Houston Athletic Trainers’ Society Student Workshop. The clinic event attracted 16 student athletic training teams from across the region.

Returning as silver medalists were Northbrook students Han Le, Christy Castelan, Janie Gurley, Denis Phan and Joey Diaz. The high school’s entire student athletic training staff attended the workshop, which was held on Jan. 12 at J. Frank Dobie High School in Houston. Dobie High School also won the Quiz Bowl competition. Northbrook's team received a trainers' book for their win.

The Greater Houston Athletic Trainers’ Society annual clinic has been held for 22 years now. It is believed to be the largest gathering of its kind, attracting up to 900 student athletic trainers and professionals for a one-day event that includes special speakers and related exhibits.

“This is the first year that they added a quiz bowl to the workshop and it gave our students a chance to show what they have learned in their school programs,” says Johnny Gomez III, the school’s head athletic trainer. “The students did a great job working together as a team.”
