Bermudian Springs High School, or Bermudian Springs, is a small, public high school in York Springs, Pennsylvania that participates in regional and statewide pyramidal quiz bowl tournaments.
Bermudian competed in the Capitol Area Quiz Bowl League, normally played by schools in the surrounding Harrisburg area. They started competing in 2008, finishing 7-8 and garnering a 9th place finish. This result would be their best: after three more disappointing seasons, including a 2010-11 season finish at 0-16, Bermudian stopped competing in the league.
With a new coach, Bermudian rejoined the circuit in 2015, competing at the Manheim Township Academic Challenge, which they have done annually since. They also have attended other tournaments, beginning with GVQBT in 2017 and other housewrite mirrors since. Though they have qualified for both HSNCT and SSNCT, Bermudian Springs has attended neither.
Bermudian Springs was one of the founding members of the York-Adams Quiz Bowl League, where it competes today.
Their best-finish at a tournament was winning the Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12's PSAC Qualifier, upsetting York Suburban 175-170 in a match that featured eight total negs by teams. York Suburban had beaten Bermudian three times that year in the York-Adams League. The team has also competed on the show Brainbusters, with their best result a 400-420 loss to Spring Grove in the quarterfinal.
