High school Knowledge Bowl team places fifth

The Steamboat Springs High School Knowledge Bowl team placed fifth at its home tournament last weekend. The team competed against squads from Moffat County, Rangely, North Park and Middle Park high schools in the five-round tournament.

The Sailors led after the opening round of written questions but fell behind during the four rounds of oral questions. Knowledge Bowl questions typically cover subjects including math, history, science, English, current events and obscure trivia. The Sailors who competed Saturday are Sarah Bockelman, Austin Anderson, Aaron Selch, Andrew Riley and Kristin Toy. Team member Austin Pivarnik didn’t compete. The Knowledge Bowl team’s next tournament is in March at Middle Park High School. Team coach Barb Tuchlinsky, the high school’s circulation manager, said the team continues to improve with tournament experience.
