The Junior High Quiz Bowl team hosted a meet where the following teams were invited: Gibbon, Red Cloud, Blue Hill, Kenesaw, and Lawrence Nelson. The six teams were divided into two pools, with three teams per pool. Silver Lake was in pool A with Lawrence Nelson and Blue Hill. They lost both qualifying games against the teams in pool A, but they went into the 5th-place game fired up and ready to compete against Kenesaw. They went into the game firing away, answering two questions and getting the bonus correct to go up 30-0. During the later questions, Kenesaw caught up and before the final question, the score was 50-45 in Kenesaw’s favor. 7th grader Kaylee Karr answered a question to tie the game up, and then the team answered the bonus question correctly to win the match and earn 5th place here at home.
