    AHS’ Ocean Science Bowl (OSB) dived into their competition Mar. 6 and had been getting along just swimmingly. OSB showed great confidence and skill that held out despite the intensity of the. “Just imagine the game as a NBA basketball game where the last point determines all: it was insane” described captain Jason Jong.

    Like other academic teams like Science Bowl (SB) and Quiz Bowl (QB), OSB competes in buzzer-based Jeopardy-styled tournaments. However, unlike SB and QB, OSB has a much more narrow focus on their topic: oceanography, which encompasses subjects like ocean biology, chemistry, and geology and an important subject this year technology.

    The nature of the competition makes preparations for tournaments exceedingly difficult. However, OSB is up for the challenge, meeting for two hours a week and ups the time to at least ten hours in anticipation for an upcoming meet. Jason Jong acknowledged the demand of the competition, “it’s all a mental challenge, you just need to cram and on the day of competition, it’ll be the mindset that counts.”

    The competition is scored by a variety of sections; the main part of the competition is the tossups, where members race to answer questions. Once answering a tossup correctly, the entire team may talk together to answer a bonus questions. There are also team challenges, where the team takes a written test, two of these tests to each round of tossups.

    Schools’ teams are set into brackets where they duke it out in a double-elimination tournament. AHS’ OSB beat out University and Troy in its first two rounds and then only AHS and Santa Monica was left. Santa Monica, who had reigned as champions the past five years in competition, beat AHS the first round. We came back however, and won 67 to 62. Good job OSB, and good luck with nationals in April!
