Camas High School traveled on Monday, February 24th to Lower Columbia College in Longview to compete in the SW Washington Regional Knowledge Bowl Tournament. It was an auspicious day for Camas Knowledge Bowl. Here are the results:
The first place Camas Varsity #3 team that won it all and is headed to State in a few weeks is made up of the following CHS juniors: Owen Baenen, Daniel deLeon, Lucas Mansfield, Julian McComie, Mark Robinson, and Sonnet Salice. Interestingly, virtually this same team won the JV tournament at this event the previous year. Camas Varsity #1 took 2nd place overall, but since we’re only allowed to send one team per school to the State Tournament, their season and storied knowledge bowl careers in Camas come sadly to an end here. They are seniors Michael Bargenda, Edward Bogachuk, Jordan Chase, Jaden Kim, Junha Lee, and Steven Sturges.
On the JV side of the tournament, our two Camas JV teams that competed also took 1st and 2nd place out of 9 total JV teams that were sent. JV #1 is made up of Jackson Chase, Khoi Dam, Minjae Dang, Ashton Doane, Jeremy Mohn, and Sunny Wang. JV #5 is Fin Leask, Nicholas Leetham, Jacob Leetham, Ishan Mehta, Adrian Soh, and Aiden Stewart.
Great season, Camas Knowledge Bowl. I’m very proud of all of you and the hard work you put into attending practice, learning how to work more effectively with a team, and on the sportsmanship you displayed and honed this season. No matter the outcome for you and your team the other day, I hope you can take some solace in being a part of the well-oiled machine that is Camas Knowledge Bowl!
On to state next month. Thanks for your support this year!
P.S. The awards dessert banquet is scheduled for Tuesday, March 24th, in the North Commons, 5:30-6:30. Details forthcoming.
