GSL Knowledge Bowl teams place 3rd, 12th, at Chaska meet

Glencoe-Silver Lake’s (GSL) Knowledge Bowl teams had a fantastic end to the 2015-2016 season: they had two teams at the state meet, who finished in second and sixth places. While a few of the students on those two teams graduated, many remain, so GSL has an undeniably good base of knowledge and skills to build on for the new season. All the same, the first meet of the season brings interesting questions: How speedy and knowledgeable are other teams? Are we still fast enough to compete on a high level? What is the best mix of students on each team for good results?
