HOOPESTON AREA HIGH SCHOOL
Scholastic Bowl is a family of games of questions and answers on all topics of human knowledge that iscommonly played by students enrolled in high school or college, although some participants begin in middle or even elementary school. Participants may benefit from studying a broad range of academic subjects, increasing memorization and study skills, learning to work in teams and expanding capacity for responsibility.
The game is typically played with a lockout buzzer system between some number of teams, most commonly two teams of four or five players each. A moderator reads questions to the teams, whose players endeavor to buzz in first with the correct answer, scoring points for their team.

On Saturday, February 20 we travelled to St. Joseph to compete in the annual Masonic Academic Bowl. The format is a little different than what we are used to, and more than half our starting players were at a Jazz Band competition today, but we persevered and had a pretty good day against some very strong competitors. We played 5 rounds of round robin pool play against Unity, PBL, Rantoul, SJO, and University of Illinois Laboratory School. We were 1-4 for the day, losing to SJO 240-190, Rantoul 210-170, PBL 260-160, Uni High 490-50, but winning against Unity 190-90. Leading the scoring today was a tie between Moriah Dugle, Levi Dickinson, and Gage Kenner with 7 each. Victoria Santillana came in second with 4 and Erin Hinojosa assisted with 2. The Cornjerkers will go on to play their last regular season matches on Thursday, Feb. 25th at Bismarck against Bismarck and Georgetown
