State Champs Return With a Bang
Can the returning state champions stay true to the past and succeed at a regular meet?
Last weekend the defending State Champion Knowledge Bowl team of Matthew Scherber, Ryder Zvorak, Avery Thompson, Milo Zimmerman, and Amelia Butler came through at Foley; staying in the lead for the entire meet and taking first place overall.
The Varsity 2 team of sophomores Greta Winger, Daniel Jungwirth, Dexter Huss, Kumail Akram, and Lucas Lawrence took second place overall after a strong final round. This year Buffalo has returned with an impressive start, with all four Varsity teams placing in the top seven teams at the meet.
Buffalo has the biggest Knowledge Bowl team in the region, consisting of seven smaller teams of 5 members: four Varsity and three JV. There are 33 Varsity and 27 JV teams competing in the area. Led by head coach Aldrich and assistant coach McCallum, the teams hope to continue to bring home trophies.
