By: Aubrie Hanna, a sophomore at Leigh High School


On Thursday, January 20, the Leigh High School’s Quiz Bowl team showed off their academic prowess by competing in their first competition of the year on the KTCH radio program’s annual quiz bowl.

In this first-round matchup against Allen Consolidated School, Leigh was victorious and will advance to the next round of the giant 64-school tournament!  The final score was 3-1. This moves them into the next round against Creighton Public Schools on February 10th. 

The participating members of this round were senior Calvin Wemhoff, senior Kanyon Held, and junior Kyle Holmberg. The rest of the team consists of seniors Kennedy Settje, Makenna Held, Justine Thompson, and Audie Tejkl along with junior Jessica Hoffman. 

“I am pleased with how we started the quiz bowl season, and I hope we can keep winning,” Wemhoff said.

Quiz Bowl sponsor Mrs. Madison Gall said, “It was an exciting morning to kick off the start off the radio quiz bowl with a win! I loved seeing how confident the team was with their answers!”
