Congrats to the varsity scholastic bowl team for placing 4th in a tough Masonic Sectional this past Saturday at Dwight. The Knights went 4-1 in pool play defeating Indian Creek, Tri-Point, Gardner South Wilmington then losing a close match to Elgin Academy but rebounded to defeat Newark. In the afternoon the knights lost to eventual champions Cornerstone Christian Academy and by only 30 pts to Fisher to round out the day. Leading the (31-14) varsity scholastic bowl team in toss-ups was AJ Johnson with 27 followed by Alexis Wike with 13, Addison Warsaw with 6 and Savannah Coffin and Brodie Soliday with 2 each. Go knights!
