CUSTER — The Onekama Consolidated Schools Quiz Bowl team recently captured the West Michigan D League Tournament at Custer.

Teams played the tournament in a double elimination format and coach Kathy Joseph’s squad went through the tournament with only one loss. All eight members of the West Michigan D League had teams entered in the tournament.

Oneakama began play with a 120-110 victory over Manistee Catholic Central and followed that up with 190-25 win over Bear Lake. The Portagers then moved on for a 190-10 win over the Brethren Bobcats. That put the Portagers in the finals against the Manistee Catholic Central Sabers.

Manistee Catholic Central won the first game 100-90 to even both teams up with one loss in the tournament bringing the championship down to the final game. In that contest the Onekama team came back strong to win 165-50 to win the traveling trophy.
