Congratulations to the high school scholar bowl teams for sweeping their games with Exeter Wednesday. The varsity, led by Seniors Alex Jimenez (11 questions) and Haven Brown (6 questions), won 280-210. Other varsity scorers included: Khalib Jordan (2 questions) and Hayden Fox (1) and Elizabeth Wolfe (1). The JV match was a little more exciting with the Trojans emerging 170-160 in sudden death overtime. Freshman Ellie Brown got 4 questions in the final quarter (she finished with 6 overall) and the game-winner in overtime. Freshman Lacey Reeves also had a strong match answering 3 questions. So what was the winning question:

The red supergiant Betlegeuse forms a shoulder of what constellation with a three-star belt that is named after a hunter in Greek mythology? Answer: Orion.

The teams return to action at the Clever Tournament on Nov. 7 before the next Ozark 7 match on Nov. 11 at home against McAuley.

Special thanks to Karen Huffman, Hannah Brown, Hope Robbins and Rachel Jimenez for helping with reading, scoring and timing.
