posted Feb 18, 2016, 5:31 AM by SWR5 Web Sites   [ updated Jun 12, 2018, 5:18 AM ]

The academic team swept its matches at Verona Wednesday. The 8th-graders, led by Jesse Foster and Hope Robbins (10 questions combined), won 180-90. The 7th-grade match went to overtime. Verona rallied in the 4th quarter to tie the score at 120. On the first question of the OT, Verona buzzed in first to spell a word. The word was opposite of professional - amateur. Verona spelled the word incorrectly and Dusty Hendrix spelled it right to give Southwest the victory. Both teams finished the conference schedule with records of 3-1 and placed 2nd behind academic powerhouse Thomas Jefferson. Southwest will be seeded 2nd in the Ozark 7 Tournament next Wednesday at Exeter.
