The Scholastic Bowl season has just begun, and they are already on fire! Both J.V. and Varsity teams are undefeated with a record of 6-0. The teams they have defeated so far are: St. Teresa, Springfield Southeast, Taylorville, Decatur MacArthur, Argenta-Oreana, and Eisenhower.
As I interviewed Coach Scan, he told me that his favorite thing about coaching the team is: “Simply just watching them be competitive, having fun, and being such great sports!” Coach Scan’s answer to my question of who the team’s rivalries are was: “Maroa-Forsyth, St. Teresa, and Mt. Zion. Warrensburg-Latham has also always been a big rival with us.”
The Scholastic Bowl team has a total of 18 kids between Varsity and J.V. Four of the team members are seniors, with one of them being Varsity Captain, Jachin Wiese. I caught up with him to get his thoughts on the season. “We have a lot of matches remaining in our fall tournament and in our conference during the winter months. Win or lose, I hope they all continue having fun and being great representatives of Sangamon Valley!” Everyone is very excited to see what this group of exemplary students has in store for the rest of the year!
