Brain Bowl 2010 Update:

NFCC's Brain Bowl team made an outstanding showing at Chipola's NAQT Tournament this past Friday and Saturday. Ten colleges and three high schools attended the event from states all over the South, and as far away as Texas. Initially Chipola was not going to play but to round out the fields and to replace late cancellations they fielded three teams. NFCC began Friday with wins over Pensacola JC, Central Florida CC, Florida State College and Holmes County HS. Their one defeat was to Chipola's A team. On Saturday the team continued the outstanding performance against Lamar State College,  Tallahassee CC, Marianna HS North-West Florida State College and South Georgia. At the end of the regular rounds NFCC had only lost to Chipola and was the second highest school in the playoff seatings. In the first round of the playoffs NFCC handily defeated Central Florida. In the final round NFCC lost to Chipola B by the narrowest of margins, with the difference coming down to the last question.

In the regular rounds Jessica Collins came in sixth among the approximately 100 players participating for which she received a medal.

Members at competition were:

  • Jessica Collins
  • Eric Szews
  • Michael Harris
  • Angela McCune
  • Tyler Moffses
  • Teresa Wren
  • Roman Cooks
  • Blake Jordan  


Brain Bowl 2008-2009 Update:

This weekend NFCC's brain bowl team won their first tournament since 1997. To do so they had to defeat the team many consider to be the best in the country: Chipola's A team. The Sentinels won by a convincing score of 525 to 445 in the championship round. NFCC is the only two year school to have beaten Chipola's first team. The panhandle region has dominated the Florida brain bowl circuit for four of the last five years with Chipola holding the state champion title for the last two years.

NFCC will proceed to the state championship tournament at Brevard CC in Cocoa Beach in March. True to form, Jessica Collins led the individual scorers at the tournament.

Members at competition were:

  • Jessica Collins (Captain)
  • Tony Fluriach
  • Michael Harris
  • Sabrina Herring
  • John Marinacc

Based on its performance at the Tallahassee NAQT Sectional, the National Academic Quiz Tournament has invited NFCC to its first national tournament. At the Tallahassee sectional NFCC was the second place school behind Chipola who went undefeated. The national tournament will be held at Valencia CC on Friday 2/27 and Saturday 2/28 and will host a field of 24 teams from across the US and Canada.

The following players represented NFCC at the Tallahassee NAQT Sectional:

  • Jessica Collins (Captain)
  • Tony Fluriach
  • Michael Harris
  • Damon Fico
  • Sabrina Herring
  • John Marinacci

This weekend the brain bowl team traveled to Orlando for the NAQT National Championship Tournament of 2-Year Schools at Valencia CC. The team got off to a slow start, dropping the first two rounds to Snead State and Georgia Perimeter. By the third match we had turned it around and defeated Chipola Blue (B-team), South Florida CC, Southwest Mississippi, Manatee CC, Brevard CC, Bevill State and Lake Sumter CC. The third loss occurred when we faced J Sargent Reynolds (Virginia).

In the championship playoffs Chipola Gold (A team) soundly defeated Northeast Alabama and Valencia Red (A team). In the final championship round though, J Sargent Reynolds proved to be too much for even Chipola Gold, handing them their second defeat of the year (NFCC was the first school to defeat them in a championship match).

Some factoids:

  1. NFCC beat the only team (Chipola Blue) to defeat the national champion (J Sargent Reynolds). If only win/loss records were transitive!

  2. NFCC was ranked in the upper half of its group, which was in the upper half of the four tiers of final standings.

  3. NFCC has been placed second on a wait list to attend the International Championship Tournament of Division II Schools to be held in Dallas in April.

  4. J Sargent Reynolds (National Champs), Chipola Gold (National Runners Up), Northeast Alabama, Valencia Red and Chipola Blue will advance to the International Championship Tournament.

  5. Jessica Collins received a trophy for being ranked in the top 10 individuals in a tournament with more then 120 individual players.

The players for NFCC's first national appearance were:

  • Jessica Collins (Captain)
  • Tony Fluriach
  • Michael Harris
  • Sabrina Herring
