Eads was the host site for the Regional Knowledge Bowl Monday, with 22 schools participating. 

Having this competition on a weekday makes it possible for more schools to participate without conflicting with sports events on Fridays. We do appreciate the administration giving us a release day for this contest. 

This region covers from Flagler and other I-70 schools in the north, to Campo in the south, and from Fowler east to the state line. 

The Eads team of Brenden Reifschneider, Breanna Wilson, and Colin Nelson had to deal with the absence of their captain, Maggie Haase, and put together an excellent written score but then struggled during the oral rounds. 

They did not win the championship, and will wait until all regional tournaments around the state are completed to find out if they will qualify for state competition based on point totals.
