Jackie was the leading scorer on the D-East team and a consistently high individual scorer at Pennsylvania circuit events. She also led D-East to its first-ever HSNCT playoff appearance in 2017.
At CMU, she continued playing and served as an officer in the quizbowl club.
Outreach and Leadership
Jackie played a key role in getting D-East, which had been dominant on the CCIU format for many years and thus focused mostly on non-pyramidal questions, to start attending pyramidal tournaments regularly. She also organized a large invitational tournament at D-East that attracted a number of new teams and advocated for more pyramidal questions and good quizbowl practices to be implemented in the CCIU competition (including a speech to the CCIU board).
