LHS students finish Quest
The Quest is over for five Lansing High School students.
The Scholar Bowl team members competed in the Quest academic trivia competition Saturday at Washburn University in Topeka with about 90 other teams from across Kansas.
At Saturday's event, each team competed against time to answer up to 200 questions, with only 5 seconds per question, team sponsor Ginny Scott said. Only the top 16 teams advanced to the next round of competition, which will be televised on public television station KTWU from February through May.
The LHS team scored 615 points on Saturday, Scott said, coming in at about the middle of the pack of Class 5A schools that competed. In that class, scores ranged from 175 to 1,000. The top three teams in Class 5A were Mill Valley High School, Bishop Carroll High School, and Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School.
The 16 school teams advancing to the next round are: Bishop Carroll, Blue Valley North, Clifton-Clyde, Independent School, Kapaun Mt. Carmel, Lawrence, Lawrence Free State, Mill Valley, Ottawa, Perry-Lecompton, Pittsburg, Shawnee Heights, Topeka West, Trinity Catholic, Washburn Rural and Wichita East.
