Petoskey High School made it four in a row as they defended their crown on February 21 in the Char-Em ISD Quiz Bowl Tournament, but not before being pushed by a determined Concord Academy team.

This pitted them in the semifinal cross over match against a formidable Petoskey B team. In the other semifinal round, East Jordan lost a close match with the Petoskey A team.
