The 8 dorms worked nicely to create a bracket where all four first round matches could be played in the morning with the semi-final and championship round in the afternoon. The winning team earns a trip to Omaha, Nebraska where they will spend a day walking around the fantastic Omaha Zoo, visiting the Strategic Air & Space Museum, and eat until their hearts desire at The Amazing Pizza Machine.
Delta moved past Mountaineer in the first semi-final round with Pathfinder beating Navigator. That set up a Delta vs. Pathfinder final that turned into one of the best Knowledge Bowls final rounds ever. Both teams were answering nearly every question tossed their way. With a tied score of 20-20, Pathfinder had the last question with time running out. An incorrect answer would give the championship to Delta, but when they answered it correctly they earned themselves a trip to Omaha and the title of 2013 Woodward Academy Knowledge Bowl Champions.
