Washington High School hosted the MSHSAA Scholar Bowl Regionals on Wednesday, April 26, facing off against Francis Howell. It was a best-of-three format.
Washington won in two games, 510-310 and 440-400, to advance to the state meet Saturday, May 6.
Washington pulled away late to win the first game.
In the second game, Washington trailed most of the first half, but held a slim lead at half, 230-190.
Francis Howell stuck around and the game came down to the last tossup question, with WHS only leading by 10. Had Francis Howell grabbed that question, it was possible that they could have won after the bonus. Francis Howell buzzed and missed on the miscellaneous subject. WHS picked it up after and went on to win, 440-400.
This will be Washington’s second consecutive trip to state. Last year was its first state appearance since 1996. WHS is still looking for it’s first-ever scholar bowl state championship.
Washington team members were Joe Stitz, Matt Chalem, Matt Dew and Cole Phinney.
The state schedule is set beforehand.
In Game 1 at state, Washington will play Carl Junction, who beat Kickapoo 2-1 in the fifth Regional match.
In Game 2 at state, Washington will play Rolla, who beat Smith-Cotton 2-0 in the sixth Regional match.
