LHS Knowledge Bowl team qualifies for regionals
The Mayer Lutheran Varsity #1 Knowledge Bowl team qualified for the regional competition on March 18 with its fourth place finish at the sub-regional competition held at the Minnesota School of Business in St. Cloud on Friday, March 8.
It was the best day for scores for the team but it only needed to place in the top six to qualify for regions.
The team can boast of its written round score being the highest among all teams and this allowed the team to compete in the top room for the first two oral rounds. Team members on Varsity #1 were: Miriam Wilson, Marie Landskroener, Christophe Morschen, Ryan Wade and Jesse Greenhagen.
The Mayer Lutheran Varsity #2 team just missed making the top six in the competition. It had the fourth highest written round score and spent the first two oral rounds in Room 2. It had a strong 5th oral round (12 points) but could not catch Eden Valley-Watkins and fell three points short of qualifying for regions. Varsity #2 team members were: Kelyn Boettcher, Chase Greenhagen, Joseph Truniger, Hannah Truniger and Ben Quiram.
