  • The LHS High-Q team is an extracurricular club that meets each week. The team participates in regional Quiz Bowl tournaments where students' knowledge of all topics is put to the test in head-to-head competitions against other schools. Using NAQT rules, students are asked questions regarding science, history, literature, art, sports, math, technology, pop culture, and current events. We compete each year in the Catawba Valley Quiz Bowl League, a three-part tournament featuring teams from Lincoln, Catawba, Burke, Caldwell, and Wilkes counties. We are also the annual host of the Western NC Shootout, a Quiz Bowl competition open to schools from Western and Central North Carolina and South Carolina. We also participate in the annual Lincoln County Knowledge Bowl against the other public high schools in the county.

    LHS High-Q assists with Varsity Football concessions as our major fundraiser during the Fall. In the Spring, our major fundraiser is the annual bake sale held at the Adult Spelling Bee.

    For the 2018-19 school year, LHS finished fifth in the Catawba Valley Quiz Bowl League, earning a berth in the NAQT High School National Championship in Atlanta, GA over Memorial Day Weekend. 

    Our 2018-19 team captains: Jonah Lanier, Varsity team, and Kyle Burgin, Junior Varsity team.
