Congratulations to both academic teams for finishing 2nd in the Ozark 7 Tournament at Exeter Wednesday. Both teams made strong comebacks to earn trophies. The 8th-graders lost their first match 180-30 to Verona, but rallied to beat Exeter and Purdy, and then beat Verona 150-30 in the rematch before losing to Thomas Jefferson in the championship. The 7th-graders defeated Exeter to begin play, but then lost to Thomas Jefferson and found themselves behind Purdy 50-0 to late in the first half of an elimination game. The Trojans rallied to tie the match at 90-90 and Austin Pippin provided the winning answer ("Denver") on the 8th overtime question. Southwest lost to Thomas Jefferson 180-130 in the championship. The teams are back in action Saturday at the Shell Knob Tournament.
