High School Academic Bowl Update - Week Two from Coach Pospisil
Another week has passed and two more matches under our belts.
This week we faced Hamilton on Monday, March 13th. The junior varsity team had a pretty tight match throughout; however, the Blue Jays won with a score of 250 to 200. Lea was the high scorer of the evening with 70 points, Taylor McNair 40 points, and Conner Bolch, Reagan Rinehart and Xander Sullins 10 points each. The varsity team was up against some stiff competition and was unable to score above their opponents. However, out of the 200 points earned by the Blue Jays, Aidan Sullivan scored 90 points, Anna Davis 30, and Truman Gillis 10 points. The other 70 points were gained during the bonus round as a team effort.
On Thursday, March 16, we played against North Platte. Both teams were victorious. The junior varsity won with the score of 210 to 180. Top scorer for the event was Taylor McNair with 40 points. Lea Moose and Conner Bolch both got 30 points each and Reagan Rinehart earned 20 points. The varsity team won with the score of 310 to 180. High scorer was Anna Davis with 70 points, Aidan Sullivan earned 60 points, Trenton Morris 50 points, Truman Gillis 40 points and Mikayla Lowe 10 points. The remaining points were gained during the bonus rounds.
