Outscoring their opponents by 155 points the OHS Varsity Scholars Bowl Team earned a second place finish Monday, December 5 at Hill City. By out performing their opponents by such a large point spread it would seem that the Osborne team would have taken first place but that is the nature of Scholars Bowl. It is not by how many points, most often, but just that at the end of each round you have a higher score than your opponent, even if it is just five points. Osborne was in a three way tie for second place at the end of nine rounds of play as this was a nine team round robin competition. Using the tie breaker methods outlined in the KSHSAA Scholars Bowl manual, Osborne took home the 2nd place medal with Ellis finishing third, and Hill City fourth. Smith Center took home the gold medal. For the Osborne team Sophomore Kate Kendig answered the most questions. Everyone on the team, however, was able to buzz in and correctly answer at least one question. It took every competitor to bring about the 2nd place finish. The other four Bulldogs were Junior Katzel Carlin, and Freshman Ryah Bertuccelli, Annie Kendig, and Cheyenne Knoll. This was the fourth Scholars Bowl of the season and the 1st one where the team took home some hardware. Hopefully, there are more medals to come this season. Go Dogs!
