Fisk University took home its first college quiz bowl championship title from the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge on April 16, defeating second-place finisher Oakwood University. 

The American Honda Motor Co., Inc. with the College Bowl Company created the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge in 1989 to bring together students from the nation’s HCBUs to battle over their knowledge of subjects ranging from African-American history to science to pop culture.

The winning question in the category of world mythology was, “What character in various world mythologies, whose name begins with A, B, or C, was the creator God eclipsed by Vishnu?” The answer was, “Brahma.”

Fisk was coached by Dr. Stafford W. Cargill and the team members included team captain junior Victor Ray Bradley, junior Matthew G. Barthwell, senior Anthony M. Franklin and junior Anna M. Wilkins.

“I am very proud of each student on the Fisk University team for the knowledge, spirit and discipline they displayed on the road to the national championship title,” Cargill said in a statement.
