2020 Academic Bowl results

On Monday, November 2, Lakeside students participated in the Capital Conference Academic Bowl.
In past years, the team has competed at a high school in the Capital Conference. However, with COVID-19, this year was a little, or a lot, different.
The team met in the library for snacks and then headed to Mrs. Schommer’s room to participate in the written portion of the testing, which was done via Google Forms.
Then, the team tests started as everyone from their various sections worked together to answer questions in English, Social Studies, Science, and Current Events. Normally, this is done with everyone that participated in the academic bowl sitting in the gym of the host school and watching teams compete in real time. This year, to still keep the “real time” part of the test, teams competed by playing a Kahoot through a Zoom call with all of the participating schools.
After all scores were totaled, Lakeside took fourth place. Individually, Rose Hissom took first place in the written portion of the English test.
“It was a lot of fun and a great way to meet underclassmen. And, the food and snacks were fantastic!” said senior Ashley Grundman.
Thanks to senior Ella Butzine for information for this report.
