Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The Rich East Scholastic Bowl team finished its regular season Wednesday evening in impressive fashion. The junior varsity team achieved its first victory of the season at the Southland Athletic Conference meet against six other teams. The JV team was led by Sarah Abbott, Nidhi Kansara, Rebeca Dorantes, Krys Bauske and Kat Brown faced tough competition all season. Congratulations JV team!
The varsity team scored the most points of the season last night. The team scored more than 100 points in each of its matches. Team captain Matt Wagener led the entire conference with 39 toss ups answered.
“That is quite an accomplishment,” said Rocket head varsity coach Sean Coughlin. “Matt also made scholastic bowl history by yelling ‘Yeah, baby’ when correctly answering a question. Such enthusiasm is rarely exhibited in regulation game play. It was a very exciting match.”
Selena Wilson, Jordyn Hayes, Jordan Allen, Zach Abbott, Jake Henderson and Maya Veal contributed to the Rockets' great night, Coughlin said.
