On Saturday, January 6, the New Haven junior varsity and varsity Scholar Bowl teams competed at Wentzville, going up against eleven teams total. Varsity got sixth in consolation A, while junior varsity got fourth in consolation B. Both varsity and junior varsity won two rounds and lost seven.
The team was asked how they thought they performed on Saturday, and junior Martin Lewis replied, “We did well in the morning. We seemed to always do better in the last 10 questions than the first 10 questions.”
Sophomore Samuel Penning said,“I don’t think I performed as well as I could have. There were definitely things I could have improved on with my performance.”
The team was also asked if there were any highlights for them during the competition, and senior Dalton Gerdes replied, “One of the games we won was a massive comeback with us down by many points and then we pulled it back to a win.”
“In the last game, I answered 4 or 5 questions correctly. I even answered a few in a row,” said junior Bradley Glaser.
Cecelia Malone, junior, responded with, “Martin left early because he had to go to work, so it was only Dalton, Kalli, and me left. Martin was our sports guy, and neither Kalli nor Dalton knew anything about sports. So it was down to me to be the sports person and I actually got a question about sports right. I was really proud of that.”
The team was also asked if there was anything they wanted to add, and junior Bradley Glaser answered with, “I wish I answered more questions during the competition.”
The Scholar Bowl team has performed well so far and hopefully they will continue to. Good luck on your next competition, Scholar Bowl Shamrocks!
