The young Mustangs soundly defeated Deshler, Blue Hill, and Thayer Central in pool play before losing to Heartland in the championship match. Leading the academic competition was captain, Clay Plambeck, answering nine toss-up questions. Other members earning toss-up points include Lanham Skrdlant (4), Paxton Sorensen (2), Jermy Sharp (1), and Katelyn Stramher (1). Cody Plambeck and Casey Conway contributed to the team’s success with bonus questions. Way to display your knowledge, Mustangs!
