This past weekend, members of the LHS scholars bowl team participated in the state competition. The competition took place at DeSoto High School where 16 schools raced on the buzzers to win the state champion title. During competitions students are asked questions ranging in topics from math to science to fine arts. Overall, the LHS team took home sixth place with a record of 5-5. The team consisted of Brandi Feehan and Brandon Randolph, seniors; Tanner Myers and Matthew Parodi, juniors; and Spencer Rogers and Alex Prettyman, sophomores.

The team is proud of their success and participation in the big event, however the journey for this year ends here.

“We did pretty well overall,” Spencer Rogers, sophomore, said. “Although, we could have done better. We started out fantastically, but lost steam along the way.”

While the team is proud, they are all already looking for ways to improve so that they may have better success next year. While the team spent many days practicing for the event, they are working on making practices more productive for next year.

“We tried to focus on questions we have missed in the past and practice those,” Christine Staab, scholars bowl coach, said. “Next year we are going to try to use quizlet to prepare.”

As the year progressed, members of the team began to better collaborate, which helped improve their chances at the state title.

“Everyone worked together as a team to do our best possible,” Staab said.

While the season is over for this year, there is always next year for those who may be interested in joining.
