“It was a very tight competition,” Coach LuAnn Muhm said. “Although our senior team ended up in 12th place out of 23 teams at Regions, they were only five points from qualifying for the state meet, which is for the top four teams.

“It was a disappointing finish, but the team should be proud of their excellence throughout their four years in knowledge bowl. The team of sophomores and juniors finished 20th, and will come back stronger next year.”

The second Nevis Knowledge Bowl team competing at Regions included Molly Lindow, Amy Brownfield, Marissa Engst and Sarah Boettcher. (Submitted photo)
