St. Mary's Metamora Class A State Scholastic Bowl Champs!

Metamora St. Mary's Class A State Champs

On May 8th Metamora St. Mary's became the Class A IESA Scholastic Bowl State Champs. The Junior High 8th Grade Team completed their season with a 12 and 1 record and then made a clean sweep of victories at regionals and sectionals to go on to compete at the state level for the first time in the 13 years of Scholastic Bowl at St. Mary's. Team coaches are Mary Grabenstetter, Alan Anderson and Linda Force.

Competition was intense during the first two matches at state, but the St. Mary's team was victorious in defeating Newark-Lisbon 176-141 and then defeating Paris Crestwood 187 to 179. That match came down to St. Mary's answering the final question of the match and then getting 3 of the 5 bonus questions to win by 8 points. The team continued to win over Limestone-Walters 246 to 65, and the championship round ended with an excellent match against Bloomington-Holy Trinity 172 to 90.

I told Barry Zimmerman about your brilliant "Bette Davis" act as you placed your fingers on your forehead, turned your visage skywards, stuck your nose in the air as said: "Oh! I haven't been to Loyola since 1971!" Very nice acting.

NO SE PREOCUPE QUERIDA. NO SE LA PROVOCAR LATA A USTED NADA MAS. EL DUENO DE LA CANTINA NO SE LE DIO CASO A LA VERDAD. LA GUARDIA SE BURLO DEL POBRE NINO SIN DARSE CUENTA DE LA CARA DE LA MALDITA.

LO SIENTO PERO MI NOVIO NO ME PERMITIRA ANDAR CON USTED. SI, EL ME PIDIO PARA UNA CITA Y SE LO ACCEPTE PERO, LUEGO, HICE A UN PRETEXTO. ESTE NO ME HARA DANO A MI CONSCIENCIA. NO HE ESTADO EN LA ESCUELA DESDE HACE DOS ANOS.
