The 1993-94 team from Bell High School in Nepean, Ontario won the Reach for the Top national championship. The team was coached by Richard Mageau.

The team swept through regionals and provincials, defeating Saunders in the Ontario final.

At nationals in London, the team again beat Saunders in the quarterfinals, a team from Sackville, Nova Scotia in the semis, and Fredericton by 30 points in the final. The following season, the 1995 Fredericton team would win the national title. The final question was "Who was the first NHL hockey player to score fifty goals? (presumably "in a single season", as the answer was "Maurice Richard")

The following year, the 1995 Bell team faced several logistical and legal struggles while trying to defend their title during a teachers' strike.
