3/7/2018 12:00:00 PM Windom sends three teams to Region 8 meet
Knowledge Bowl is a team competition. One team member may be strong in math, another in science, another in geography, another in English, etc. Put them all together and it can spell success, especially when Knowledge Bowl questions run the gamut, from history to entertainment.
Knowledge Bowl also can be a close game. Missing one question can be the difference between taking home hardware and going home empty-handed.
Windom 1 learned that lesson the hard way at Friday's South Sub-Region 8 Tournament in Jackson. The team of seniors Dakota Scott, Jacob Schaffer, Sam Diemer, Daniel Green and Ethan Johnson finished fourth with 79 points, just a half-point behind third-place Fulda.
Murray County Central 1 captured the meet title with 94.5 points, while Adrian 1 was second with 81.5 points. Windom 2 was fifth with 78 points.
A total of 33 teams from nine schools competed in the tournament.
To learn the team members of Windom's other two qualifying teams and their finishes, see the story on the Education page in the March 7 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
