Belvidere’s Scholastic Bowl team hosted the Northwestern Illinois Regional History Bowl and the History Bee. The boys finished in the semifinals. Senior Nick Larson placed third in the History Bee.

The team also hosted the David Riley Memorial Kickoff tournament on Saturday, Nov. 17 at BHS. Twelve teams from the area attended the competition.

The Bucs won first place in the tournament with an average of 400 points per game. This average was almost 100 points higher than the next highest scoring team.

Larson said, “We are happy to have won a kickoff tournament two years in a row and are ready to keep achieving at a high level this season.”

Senior Kai Bonsol said he contributed by getting a lot of the math questions correct for the team.

BHS qualified for the National Academic Quiz Tournament in Atlanta, Georgia. This will be their fourth year in a row qualifying under Warner and Tatman.

Warner said, “Our team has done exceptionally well for the last 4 years… We have high standards for ourselves and are focusing on increasing technical aspects of our performance, like PPB, or parts per bonus, which affects how teams are ranked.”
