HHS scholars team competes at state

Hillsboro High School scholars’ bowl team finished its season with a 1-4 record at 3A state tournament Saturday in Cimarron.

The team’s five matches were decided by a combined 50 points, an average of one question per match. HHS defeated Thomas More Prep, 30-25. The team’s losses were against Burlington, 30-10; Jefferson County North, 40-30; Douglass, 40-30; and Conway Springs, 55-50.

Team members were Daniel Gray, Jonathan King, Briana Loewen, George Steketee, and Evan Wienck.

“We’ll miss the seniors (King, Loewen, and Steketee) next year,” coach Stuart Holmes said. “They did an outstanding job.

“Our students were very competitive against the best teams in the state but were just a couple of correct answers away from advancing to the championship round robin.

“The kids should feel good about their effort and their focus but just came up a little short,” Holmes continued. “They represented the school and themselves well and should feel good about what they accomplished this season.”
