Auburn’s basketball team wasn’t the only school team competing in Peoria Friday.
Their Scholastic Bowl squad defended their State Quiz Bowl Championship. They advanced to the finals after defeating Piasa, Aurora, and Urbana. They took on Hinsdale. It came down to the last question, but the Knights came up short, finishing in 2nd place.
“It’s exciting, but also disappointing because we thought we could have won,” said Junior Henry Roe. “I’m still happy though.”
Keith Country Day School also competed in the class of smaller schools. They won one of their three matches, placing out of the top three.
