On Feb 2., the varsity Scholars Bowl team traveled to Kingman to compete in the Regionals meet. Members who attended Regionals included seniors Jessica Mies and Dennis Zoglmann, junior Makenna Beesley, sophomores Cooper Boyles and Nathan Ohl and freshman Amy Zoglmann. The team was made up of more underclassmen than a typical varsity team.

“I was always on JV,” Amy said, “so I was excited to compete at Regionals.”

In pool play, the team went 5-2, beating Belle Plaine, Douglass, Garden Plain, Halstead and Hugoton. They had a tied record with Remington but had lost to them head to head, making Conway third in their pool, allowing them to advance into finals. Mies led the team in total pool play points with 90.

In finals, Conway beat Cheney and Remington, resulting in a 2-3 record, tying with Cheney. Since Conway beat them in the head to head match, Conway ended with the fourth place title. Dennis led the team with 60 points in finals.

Boyles said he wished they would’ve done better, but wasn’t too disappointed with the results. However, to qualify for the State meet, teams must have placed in the top three places overall.

“We did really well,” Ohl said. “We were only one win away from going to State.”
