K-Bowl Teams Bowl the Competition

Did you hear? One of our Camas HS Knowledge Bowl teams qualified for state by taking first place at the SW WA (ESD 112) Regional tournament this past Monday. This dynamic Varsity team consists of these members: Chris Grote, Chris Emmet, Ryan Gompertz, Alec Maier, and Nick Lim. These five Papermakers are the returning state triple A champions in Washington, and will get the chance to defend that title on March 26  at the state tournament in Richland. This is also the group that traveled to DC last spring to compete in a national tournament. They will be joined at state this year by another teammate Jacob Freedman.

We had four varsity teams compete, and out of 12 triple A teams in our region, we finished in first, sixth, seventh, and ninth. Not a bad tourney!

We also had three teams compete at the Junior Varsity level where the top nine out of all 39 JV teams in our region competed. They finished second, fifth, and sixth, which is fantastic! The team members of the second place team  include these freshmen: Kyle Binder, Xinyang Chen, Rachel Fadlovich, Shicon Wen, Lindsay Weinberg, and Tim Liu.

If you see any of these champions of knowledge, tell them congratulations!
