Congratulations to the Varsity Scholastic Bowl team for winning the 11 school Masonic Sectional this past Saturday at Macon Meridian.  In tough pool play competition the Knights were victorious over Pawnee 220-190, Central A and M 270-160, Nokomis 250-90 and two contentious matches over Cornerstone 210-200 and Sangamon Valley 220-210 to survive pool play.  In the afternoon the knights dispatched the hosts, Meridian by the score of 240-140 and finally defeated Cornerstone once again by the score of 200-140 to capture the Masonic Sectional championship.  Leading the Knights in toss-ups was Sami Boogren with 23 followed by Conner Otto with 10, Aiden Soliday and A.J. Johnson with 8 a piece and Alexis Wike with 7.  The  44-12 Knights are one of ten class A sectional winners to advance to the Masonic State Championship on March 5th at Bloomington H.S.  Go Knights!
