Ogallala Quiz Bowl Team Earns 2nd at ESU 16 Competition and Qualifies for State

    The Ogallala Quiz bowl team recently competed in the ESU 16 Quiz Bowl meet in Sutherland, and earned 2nd place out of 14 teams. They competed in 5 rounds, losing only to North Platte St. Pats in the championship matches. Ogallala started the tournament by beating Perkins County 60-20, then overcame Maxwell 40-0. The students then went head to head in a close match against Arthur that Ogallala won on the last question 40-25.  They then played North Platte St. Pats for the first time and won the match 55-35. This set them up to be undefeated in the championship, and they ended up playing North Platte St. Pats again. Unfortunately they lost the match 10-45, and had to play a second championship, as it was a double elimination tournament and both teams only had one loss at this point. North Platte St. Pats went on the win the final championship 40-0. The kids were disappointed they couldn’t beat North Platte again, but were very pleased with receiving 2nd place. All members of the team contributed well, and it made the kids even more excited for the upcoming competitions. Earning 2nd place at this tournament qualifies the team for state that will be held on April 29th in Holdrege at the Prairie Museum. The team’s next competition is on April 13th in Ogallala when they compete at the Southwest Conference Tournament. Team members included Samuel Tschetter, Abigail Tschetter, Jordyn Kenkel, Steph Skinner, Alex Lind, Raelyn DeVries, Tylar Thompson, and Celie Knudsen. This team was a mix of veteran competitors and some new participants, and they all felt that the mix of knowledge made them a strong unit.
