Eliza Grames is a senior at the University of Minnesota where she is the current treasurer after two years as the Committee Chair. Her major accomplishments as the Chair were creating an updated collegiate clubs contact list, hosting numerous on-campus trivia events including on-stage entertainment before OK Go, and setting the team up to transition to being governed by five officers in 2012-2013.

As a player, she got significantly better between the 2010-2011 season and the 2011-2012 season following a summer of employment at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, where she was paid to read books at boat landings for 40 hours a week when no fishermen were present. Other factors that may have contributed - writing roughly half of 2011 MUT, co-editing the Minnesota High School Novice Tournament, and writing for HSAPQ. She was reportedly drafted for Fantasy ICT at the University of Michigan but doesn't understand why anyone would think that was a good idea, considering every time she plays a tournament with Melanie Keating a great deal of giggling occurs.

Eliza did not play high school Quizbowl because her high school regrettably only participated in the dreaded Knowledge Bowl. Luckily, she was introduced to Quizbowl by a former DeLaSalle player who lived down the hallway in her dorm freshman year.



Eliza co-edited the 2011-2012 Minnesota High School Novice Tournament with Gaurav Kandlikar. She also has written large percentages of the 2011 and 2012 Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament sets. She contributed to the 2012 MOQBA JV Set and writes for HSAPQ. In 2012, she is co-writing an awful trash set called Never Say Never: Anything Goes with Melanie Keating which will be run as a side event at Minnesota Open.
