The regional knowledge bowl competition was held at Lamar Community College on February 10. Teams from 24 schools scattered across Southeastern Colorado competed in the state-qualifying event. Six 2A schools and 18 1A schools were represented at the meet.
The competition was fierce, and a mere five points separated the third through eighth place teams in the 1A division, while there was a four-point spread between the second and fourth place 2A teams. The top six 1A and top two 2A schools qualified for the state tournament.
