WHAT IS KNOWLEDGE BOWL?

Knowledge Bowl is kind of like a team Jeopardy competition. A school’s Knowledge Bowl team is made up of smaller teams, each consisting of generally 4 – 6 team members. Our school’s teams compete against other teams from neighboring schools to see who can answer the most questions in math, science, history, English, social studies, etc.

During each competition, teams compete in a written round (45 multiple-choice questions in middle school, 60 for high school) and two oral rounds (45 questions each round, except for 60 each in high school). The winning team is based on the total number of questions answered correctly in all three rounds.

The high school regular season runs from October through February.  The middle school season runs from January through February.

CHS RR#3 Meet Results

Greetings, Knowledge Bowlers!

There were three different Camas teams/programs in action at Union High School last night, January 12th, 2022. Boys basketball sadly lost a squeaker, girls basketball won comfortably, and Camas Knowledge Bowl also rolled to victory! Two out of three aint bad, right?

Here’s how it played out:

  • Varsity – 1st, 3rd 4th, and 8th out of 9.
    • Camas Varsity #1 had an impressive night that earned them first place overall with 72 points total! The next closest team had 55 points. Wow!
    • This team is made up of Jackson Chase, Khoi Dam, Kit Nguyen, Nathan Sutherland, and Sunny Wang
    • If you’d like to see how this all shakes out in the region, have a look here (check back if not updated with most recent results): Varsity Regional Standings
  • JV – 1st, 3rd, 4th, 6th , 8th, and 9th out of 12.
    • For JV, the first place winners, with a convincingly sound score of 51, were the following JV#4 superstars: Andrew Allen, Sam Goyzman, Lisel Shyam, and Eric Theumer
    • And here are the regional standings for all Junior Varsity teams (check back if not updated with most recent results):  JV Regional Standings.
    • Looking ahead to February, keep in mind that the top 9 JV teams in the region (and all Varsity teams …) get invited to the Southwest Washington Regional Tourney at the end of the season, but each school is allowed only 2 JV entrants, despite the fact that we routinely qualify all of our teams for this tournament since we typically place MOST of our teams in the top 9. We call this limiting rule “The Camas Rule” :^) Right now that would mean that JV#4 and JV#2 would go to the tourney.

Congratulations, Camas Knowledge Bowl. I’ve pasted the complete meet scores in below for your reference. Coach Bohac and I are very proud of you all. Our next meet is February 2nd, 2022, at Washougal High School.

Thanks for your continued support,

Coach Greene & Bohac

CHS RR#2 Meet Results

Camas Knowledge Bowl had a great showing last night here at Camas High School, knowledge bowling its way to top finishes against others from the League in our 2nd Round Robin tournament of the year. There were over 100 students and 4 schools involved in this, not to mention the 15+ adults who volunteered their time/resources to make this possible (see below for a full listing of them …).

Here’s how it played out:

  • Varsity – 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 7th out of 9
    • Camas Varsity #2 had an impressive night that earned them first place overall with 59 points total! They were closely trailed by Camas #1 (55 points).
    • Congrats, Camas Varsity #2!  This team is made up of Aiden Bai, Stephen Fewel, Ava Wagner, Andrew Wessel, Steven Wu, and Christopher Steinbronn.
    • If you’d like to see how this shakes out in the region, have a look here (check back if not updated with most recent results): Varsity Regional Standings
  • JV – 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th , and 8th out of 12.
    • For JV, the first place winners, with a convincingly sound score of 46, were the following JV#1 sophomore phenoms: Vincent Li, Luka Obradovic, Aarav Shah, Tyler Sutherland, Ryan Wang, and Laura Wang
    • And here are the regional standings for all Junior Varsity teams (check back if not updated with most recent results):  JV Regional Standings.
    • Looking ahead to February, keep in mind that the top 9 JV teams in the region (and all Varsity teams …) get invited to the Southwest Washington Regional Tourney at the end of the season, but each school is allowed only 2 JV entrants, despite the fact that we routinely qualify all of our teams for this tournament since we typically place MOST of our teams in the top 9. We call this limiting rule “The Camas Rule” :^)

    Congratulations, Camas Knowledge Bowl.  I’ve pasted the complete meet scores in below for your reference.  Coach Bohac and I are very proud of you all. Our next meet is January 12th, 2022, at Union High School.

K-Bowl RR#1 Meet Results

CHS Knowledge Bowl traveled to Columbia Adventist Academy last night to compete in the 1st meet of the season, and our first “in person” meet in almost two years.  We did very well. @PapermakersArmy,  @Camasonian_

On the Varsity side of things, we had a great night, with Camas taking  1st, 2nd, 4th, and 7th out of 9. Camas #1 was the big winner, though, cruising to victory with a score of 63 total points. The next closest team had 42 total points. Wow, what a margin. Camas #1 is made up of Jackson Chase, Khoi Dam, Kit Nguyen, Nathan Sutherland, and Sunny Wang.

Junior Varsity also had a very strong showing taking 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th out of 12. Top honors went to JV #4, who scored a very solid 54 points to convincingly claim 1st place. They are Andrew Allen, Sam Goyzman, Lisel Shyman, and Eric Theumer. Bravo!

If you’d like to see how things are shaking out in the League/Region, check out the standings: Varsity Regional Standings & JV Regional Standings.  If you didn’t already recall this, our region ranges from about Longview in the north, to Ilwaco in the west, to White Salmon in the east.  What a great start to the season for Camas. Well done!

Our next meet is Wednesday, December 8th, at Camas High School. Let’s go!

CHS Team Selection 21-22

Greetings, Knowledge Bowlers!

It’s time for us to form teams and get ready for competition. Here’s some info for that process.

We always want to do well in Knowledge Bowl, but we also want to have fun. Part of having fun and doing well is being with people that share your interests and desires. To that end, I’m asking for your input on the people that you’d like to work with this year.

Whenever possible, I’ll try to honor your wishes and desires as I work to put together the magnificent puzzle that will be our 4 Varsity and 6 JV teams. Inevitably, though, there will be some issues to work through with this, so please help me help you and let me know if you have concerns or comments. Thanks in advance for your patience, grace, and flexibility with this process. Those things are, afterall, part of being a good teammate.

Couple of reminders about the team selection process:

  • If you have a prepackaged team where 6 of you have agreed to form a team, please just have one person (maybe the captain or designated form filler outer?) submit the form so that there’s less stuff to sift through on my end.
  • Teams can and will cut across lunches and grade levels.
  • We are limited to 6 on a team and will need to have 6 on each team due to our awesome turn out. If you have less than 6, remaining spots will be filled.
  • If you’re not sure who to choose or you don’t really care, maybe just select one or two or three others that you’d be comfortable working with potentially. I’ll do my best, but the more legwork you do on your end, the better the results usually are for you.
  • You must login to the team form with your CSD#117 Google logon to begin the process of selecting your potential teammates.
  • Use this link to give your input for the teams this year: https://forms.gle/WLUPZf3SBQrYdMkF7 

Please complete this by end of lunch on 10/25/21 (Mon.) to have your input considered.

The first draft of teams will be revealed a couple of days after the deadline for team selection has come and passed. You will meet up with your full team for the first time after school during conference period in a REQUIRED MEETING on 10/28/19, from 2:54-3:20 in room 710 if you’re JV, and room 506 if you’re on varsity. The purpose of that meeting is to do a quick practice mini-written round and to talk strategy for the first meet. Please plan on being at this REQUIRED MEETING  so we can take care of our teams and get the practice needed for our first meet.

Questions? Email me or come see me or Mr. Bohac during practice in 710 and 506 respectively.

Welcome to CHS Knowledge Bowl 2021-22

Greetings, Knowledge Bowlers!

It’s once again that time of the year to fire up CHS Knowledge Bowl and get ready for the season, which we hope will resemble something more like the traditional in-person knowledge bowl we know and love!

In preparation for the year, we will hold a couple of brief, 5-10 minute informational meetings during lunch in room 710 on Tuesday, 10/05/21 OR Thursday, 10/07/21. You only need to come to one of these, so please choose just one of the days, either Tuesday or Thursday, to show up during your regularly scheduled lunch time (A lunch or B lunch) to reconnect with your k-bowl compadres, get some info for this year’s season. These will be super brief; you’ll be free to go and eat after about 5-10 minutes of info and Q&A.

To be clear, though, you can sign up now by following the steps outlined below! You don’t have to wait until the meeting.

Never done Knowledge Bowl? No sweat. Show up and we’ll get you squared away with the wonderful world of bowling for knowledge!

In summary:

  • Practices will eventually happen Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday during lunch. There will be no practice on Wednesdays.
  • You will likely be assigned a lunch grouping you’ll practice with two times per week, probably a Monday/Thursday group OR a Tuesday/Friday group to accommodate the large numbers and the need for 6ft distancing while eating and practicing.
  • After the first week, we’ll split to different practice locations, with the A lunch knowledge bowlers working with Mr. Greene in 710. B lunch will work with Mr. Bohac in 506.
  • Knowledge Bowl is limited to 50-60 total participants. So … the first 50-60 to have all of their registrations and related paperwork completed will be the ones participating this year.  

Speaking of which, your successful registration and enrollment in Knowledge Bowl this year consists of the following time sensitive actions:

  1. Clicking on the online registration link and filling out the form. I’ll use this form for gathering some basic information I need for the season.
  2. Getting an ASB card and paying the “pay to play” fee of $40 that covers transportation and miscellaneous program expenses. Pay by cash or check at the ASB window before/after school or during lunch. You can also pay online: https://wa-camas.intouchreceipting.com/ 
  3. Filling out the paperwork and permissions form to be completed and emailed back to Mr. Greene. This is a fillable PDF form that you can make a copy of, fill out, then save and email back to me. If you have problems with this form, you can print this and fill it out by hand, scan it, or even take pictures and email them to me (least preferred option). You’re also welcome to drop this off to me at CHS in room 710 if that suits you better.
  4. Signing up and/or updating your Remind info to receive vital info about k-bowl via text, email, and/or app. If you’ve done this in the past, you should just need to verify your membership in this group and the related settingshttps://www.remind.com/join/4428864

Looking forward to a great, fun year hanging out with you all and bowling for knowledge. As always, email with questions. We’ll see you on 10/05 or 10/07 … Cheers!
