Team members; Kyle Yehle, Hannah Marcum, Brian Mullen, Colton Townsend,Seth Willets, Zach Johnson, Ben Hill, and Ryan Johnson competed wll against some great competitors from other POI schools. As noted by Coach Gallagher "The Bulldogs were a very strong team this POI season. They were solid competitors in each competition. In the matches where we were defeated, we were in it until the very end. This group handled some extremely challenging questions whit ease. They certainly represent BCHS well".

This group also is responsible for hosting the first ever "in school" middle school academic quiz bowl comppetition. Thirty Bedford middle schooler's competed in a fun but challenging academic competition.
