On November 6, youth from the Fillmore Free Methodist Church placed first in their division at a regional Bible Quiz tournament in East Peoria, Illinois. The Fillmore team of Katie Roberts, Corrin Lee, and Callie Lee was undefeated with a record of 6-0. Katie Roberts served as captain, and earned the maximum number of points allowed for an individual in this competition.

While Katie led the team's scoring, all three teammates were scored needed points in their overtime victory against the second place team from Elgin, Illinois. The Bible quizzers jumped off electronic chairs to earn an opportunity to answer questions from the Biblical book of Hebrews.

Twenty-eight teams from Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin participated.
