Plainview Junior High Knowledge Bowl Team Second at Holly Meet

After two knowledge meets—Eads and Holly—the Plainview Junior High Knowledge Team is proving to be a force. These students—Jaxson Specht, Gael Enriquez-Munoz, and Alexa Enriquez-Munoz—have not competed in knowledge bowl before and are definitely doing well.

At the Eads Meet, they placed fifth in the seventh-grade division. Holly JH placed fourth (Plainview actually tied with Holly, but the Wildcats had higher scores in the previous oral round). In that meet Swink placed second, and Lamar placed first.

At the Holly Meet, the Hawks showed improvement from their first meet, scoring 19 points in the written round, 18 points in the first oral round and 10 points in the second oral round. Going into the third and final oral round, Plainview was first with 47 points. Behind them was Holly with 40 and Lamar with 39. Unfortunately, the Hawks couldn’t keep up their momentum against Holly, who scored sixteen points to our six. The Hawks finish second with 53 points and Lamar finished third with 44 points. Holly placed first with 56 points.

The Junior High Hawks look forward to each meet and exhibit a winning energy. Knowledge Bowl meets coming up for the Plainview team in December are Flagler (December 1) and Springfield (December 8).

Good luck to Jaxson, Gael, and Alexa in your upcoming meets.
