Ten Saint John’s Prep Knowledge Bowlers headed to the regional competition in Sartell on March 17th for a knowledge showdown to determine which teams went on to state. Powered only by pizza, coffee, pop, and doughnuts, they managed to claim two of the three slots at state in the Class A division for our region.

Varsity Team One (Sam Rogers, Tina Chen, Marisa Gaetz, Nick Haeg, and Justin Terhaar) started off in Room 2 due to extremely close written round scores among the top few teams. They landed a whopping 22 points and rocketed to first place, a position they maintained with a healthy margin for the rest of the meet. Their signature answer at regionals was “El Chapo Guzman,” which they used as an answer no less than three times, two of which were correct.

The members of Team Two (Amelia Broman, Nathan Broman, Gwyneth John, Ben Lepinski, and Max Seymour) were on their game for the whole meet, managing to stay in Room 1 for every round. They took second place among the small schools, a good distance ahead of Watertown-Mayer, the third small school headed to state. After getting jumped in the rankings by a team from Buffalo that came up from the room below, they finished third overall among both the large and small schools. While Team Two did not have a signature answer, they did pick up the point that Team One missed with their incorrect El Chapo answer (it was New York).

Both teams will head to the state competition held in Brainerd on April 13th and 14th. There, they will face their old rival Glencoe-Silver Lake and hopefully come home with a trophy or two. Thank you to coaches Mr. Miller and Ms. Daiker for all their Knowledge Bowl wisdom and support, and to the Knowledge Bowlers and faculty who helped the teams practice for the regional meet!

    Great update on our KB KB teams! (Kick Butt Knowledge Bowl teams, in case you were wondering)
    Best of luck at the state competition!

    P.S.: No article on the three-time champions of the Smartest Advising competition?
