Knowledge Bowl team places second in contest

Led by senior Lia Kozatch, the Steamboat Springs High School Knowledge Bowl team placed second at a tournament last weekend at Moffat County High School in Craig.

"I'm very proud of how well the students are able to do with the small team we have this year," team sponsor Barb Tuchlinsky said. "Lia is our literature and grammar expert, so it was nice to have her. It was the first time she was able to compete this season."

Kozatch was joined by fellow students Sarah Bockelman, Nathan Blair and Austin Anderson at the tournament, which was attended by 12 teams fielded by five area schools. Rangely High School finished first.

"They took an early lead and were hard to catch," Tuchlinsky said.

Points in Knowledge Bowl competitions are awarded to teams based on their responses to questions ranging in subject area from literature to math to general trivia-type queries.

The team will prepare for its only home tournament of the season, a Feb. 7 event at the high school. Anyone interested in helping at the tournament can contact Tuchlinsky at 871-3689.
