Scholars Bowl Team Starts Season
By Krista Gerstner
Extracurricular activities have taken a hit due to the COVID pandemic, and Scholars Bowl is no exception. The team has been unable to compete thus far; however, on Thursday, January 13, they were able to participate in their first meet of the season: an online varsity meet hosted by Fairfield High School. Team captain, Carson Cargill, says ďAlthough I would rather have meets in person, Iím still happy that we can compete in some way. Scholars Bowl is one of my favorite activities, and Iím grateful that we can compete in any form.Ē The Indians placed 1st in their pool with a Win/Loss record of 4-1 and were beaten in the finals by the Kingman Eagles with a score of 50-20, placing 2nd overall. The JV and varsity teams will compete in the virtual CPL League Meet on Tuesday, January 26, hosted by Wichita Trinity.
