Four junior high Knowledge Bowl teams compete at Marshall meet

Early in January, all the best seventh- to ninth-grade Knowledge Bowlers from Southwestern Minnesota converge on Marshall to compete. This year there were 48 teams from schools from Windom, Redwood Falls, and Minneota to Lester Prairie, Hutchinson, Winsted, and Glencoe. These teams all advanced from Region 6 and 8 meets in December.
GSL had four teams: Purple, Silver, White, and Blue. The Blue team included Devin Everding, Abby Gronlund, Eli Kuehn, Jon Ramige  and Rachel Trebesch. For the entire meet they competed in Rooms Two and Three, but their last round of 13 moved them up to third place with a total score of 101.5. (New London-Spicer finished in first with a score of 112.5, while Edgerton placed second with 107.5.)
GSL Purple started higher, in third place, but dropped to Rooms Six and Nine before moving back up to finish eighth with 93.5. This team included Dan Cross, Devin Forcier, Allie Gronlund, Summer Hayes, Emma Petersen and Elida Roskamp.
GSL Silver began in Room Two, tied with GSL Blue. They stayed in Rooms Two, Three and Four for the whole meet, and finished in 11th place with a score of 90.5. The team members were Austin Brewton, Nathan Fehrenbach, Emma Gepson, Katilyn Lemke, Kayla Reichow and Paul Seivert.
GSL’s White team began in 35th place, and moved up as high as 25th place, but dropped back a little to finish in 29th place with a score of 78.0. Lexi Fronk, Cade Herrmann, Cole Janke, Vera Kornilova and Zach Reichow were the team members.
“All of GSL’s teams did a good job representing GSL, and we are proud of them all,” said Coach Vicky Harris. From now on, the freshmen will be moving up to junior varsity and the junior high teams will be seventh and eighth graders. The junior high season will include two more meets, ending at GSL’s home meet Saturday, Feb. 5.
