The Red Cloud Warriors escaped the intellectual ability of the Silver Lake Junior High Quiz Bowl team as they narrowly defeated the Mustangs sending them to the Loser’s bracket during the first round of the Twin Valley Junior High Quiz Bowl competition on November 21st. The young Silver Lake team remained confident as they worked their way through the brackets defeating Harvard, Lawrence/Nelson, and Franklin. The last match of the day featured the Blue Hill Bobcats, who were flawless on the day, against the Silver Lake Mustangs. After much back and forth, buzzing in, and bonus questions, the Mustangs fell to the Bobcats 25 – 50! Silver Lake is proud to be declared Runner – Up in the Twin Valley Conference 2019 Competition.
Silver Lake School hosted this Quiz Bowl event and the competition was a huge success – from the delicious breakfast prepared by Jeannie Kral, and the top-notch presentations at two sites by volunteers. A BIG “thank you” to Mr. Bauer, Mr. Sluka, Keith Pavelka, Deanie Harris, Cheryl Klein, and Cleo Mousel for “running the show!”
Also, thanks to those spectators who supported the Mustangs! It is always so good to see and feel your support!
