As we come to the end of the year, it is easy to see that both TSA and Knowledge Bowl have made it an outstanding one. TSA made it to State (allowing them to advance to Nationals in Orlando,) and came out with a victory for Video Game Design. They also dominated the White Cap Division, ending up on top. Knowledge Bowl made it to State as well. In their division, they were 15th in 3A, coming 40th overall at state.
When TSA traveled to Denver for State, first year member Adam Guenthner did not expect to win, due to his younger status. Kallen Ford, sophomore, explained his experience when they were announcing winners, “I thought it was funny, because we felt like we won but they haven’t announced it yet, so we waited till it was announced so it could be official.” This victory would come, as the team took home the gold medal. TSA still has yet to travel to Orlando, Florida, so they can compete in Nationals. Ford expects to win it all when they go compete, and Guenthner hopes to be top 3, but wants to win it all. Good luck this summer!
Knowledge Bowl headed to CSU for their state competition. As they contended against the other 3A schools, they came out in 15th place out of the 16th teams. In the state overall they were 40 out of 60. Member Reece Clark, explains on his experience at state, “It was fun competing with my friends, and it was a great experience.” When not hard at work competing in 12 rounds of competition, the group participated in laser tag! Another member, Bret Johnson, spoke about State accomplishments and National prospects, “State wasn’t the best for us this year, but next year we will be looking for a better year, and we are ready to take on Nationals. We should do really good!” Knowledge Bowl will be heading to Chicago to compete in Nationals at the beginning of May.
