During the first weekend of March, the Apostolic Pentecostal Church of Vandalia, located at 908 East Highway 54, hosted a Bible Quiz competition.
Teams traveled from Evansville, Ind.; Carmi, Ill.; Battlefield, Mo.; Akron, Ohio; and Edwardsburg, Mich.
While hosting this quiz Vandalia’s Senior Team and Junior Team both won third place team trophies and the Beginners Team won an undefeated first place team trophy. Individually, Nayzeth Ambrocio won third place on the All-Tournament team for the Junior Team; Malorie Parks won fifth place on the All-Tournament Team for the Senior Team; Caleb Hazel won first place and Rachel Murray won second place on the All-Tournament Team for the Beginners Team.
The season actually kicked off for the Bible Quizzers in February when they traveled to Crothersville, Ind. During that quiz, Malorie Parks won fifth place on the All-Tournament Senior Team; Nayzeth Ambrocio won fifth place on the All-Tournament Junior Team; and Caleb Hazel won first place and Rachel Murray won second place on the All-Tournament Beginners team.
