The Washington High School Scholar Bowl team has qualified for the State Meet.
After winning the Class 4 District 5 Meet on April 16, Washington earned a spot in Sectionals on April 27.
Washington traveled to Francis Howell for the sectional meet in a best-of-three series.
WHS won two straight games, making the third game unnecessary - 530-320 and 510-320.
Team members are Joe Stitz, Matt Chalem, Matt Dew and Cole Phinney.
According to WHS Coach David Dennis, Washington was last at a scholar bowl state tournament in 1996, and is still looking for its first state win, as that 1996 group went 0-3. No matter what, Washington is in the top 8 of Class 4.
The state meet is Saturday, May 7, at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
The rest of the Class 4 State field is Farmington, Ladue, Hickman, Branson, Carl Junction, North Kansas City and St. Joseph Central.
At state, there are three preliminary matches. Washington will face Hickman, Ladue and St. Joseph Central. After those three games, the best four records out of the eight teams will go on to the semifinals.
"We will be playing with a much different lineup, as prom is the same day,” Dennis said. “I personally will be with the WMS kids at Nationals in Atlanta. Thanks in advance to my assistant coaches.”
