Camas High School traveled on Monday, February 25th 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 kiddoes: Michael Bargenda, Edward Bogachuk, Jordan Chase, Junha Lee, Jacob Leetham, and Steven Sturges. 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 Monica Chang, Abigail Jiang, Christopher Xia, Rahul Ram, Jason Liu, and Maia Kawamura. The JV #1 phenoms who won the JV tournament are sophomores Owen Baenen, Sonnet Salice, Mark Robinson, Lucas Mansfield, James Hatch, and Julian McComie
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 yesterday, 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 26th, in the North Commons, 5:30-6:30. Details forthcoming.
