The 2016 Bolles Brain Brawl team qualified to enter the June 2016 National Competition Quiz Bowl following a rigorous performance at the Duval County Brain Brawl single elimination tournament.

The Bolles team was one of 16 schools competing in the Jan. 9 contest. Bolles won the first three rounds, whittling the competition down to a final round match against Stanton College Preparatory School. While the Bolles team took second place in the contest, their strong performance qualified them for the national battle.

Team members are: Evan Siewert (captain), Amy Song, Ria Joglekar, Anthony Hakim, Robert Pooley, Isabella Array, Harrison Dinsbeer and Kunal Kanaparti. The Bolles Brain Brawl coaches are Clare Lange and Melissa Tyler.
