Saint Joseph Prep's Trivia Club will compete in the High School Quiz Show this upcoming winter. The club has participated in auditions for HSQS since 2014. This is the first time the team has qualified for the televised competition.
High School Quiz Show, hosted by radio and television personality Billy Costa, is filming its 14th season this year. 16 teams from across Massachusetts compete. Saint Joseph Prep is matched against North Quincy High School in the season bracket.
Each team has up to six members. Four members compete and 2 are alternates. SJP's team includes six member of the Class of 2023:
- Lukas Binggeli
- Katelyn Murphy
- Patrick Duffy
- Ruari O'Sullivan

In order to qualify for the televised competition, teams must audition at Super Sunday. This year, Super Sunday was held on November 6th. Lukas, Katelyn, Patrick and Ruari took a 50 question test covering 10 subject areas. Sixty-five schools competed at Super Sunday this year. The top 17 schools who scored the highest were selected to move on to the televised competition. The first game is a wild card match to complete the 16 team single elimination bracket.
Filming of the live HSQS competition will take place on the weekends of January 21-22, 2023 and January 28-29, 2023 at the GBH studio on Guest Street in Boston. The competition will air later in the winter. Stay tuned for more details.
