  • Dodge City students had an opportunity to display their brain power on Jan. 28 at a Scholar’s Bowl, taking three of four winning spots. The event was hosted by Comanche Middle School. The Scholar’s Bowl is a team activity held every year where students buzz in to answer factual questions. “It’s an alternative activity that kids can take that’s more reliant on intelligence and knowledge than it is athleticism, so it’s a good activity for kids that are academically strong as opposed to athletically,” coach Brian Steib said. Students from Kepley Middle School, Hugoton Middle School, Sacred Heart, Comanche and Dodge City Middle School (DCMS) participated. There were eight teams in two pools for a total of 16 teams. After seven rounds of regular play, the top two teams from each pool went into bracket play where students competed in a semifinal and final. Kepley Middle School took first place, with DCMS coming in second. Comanche Middle School came in third, followed by another DCMS team in fourth. Sarah Samuelson and Lydia Podrebarac coached the Comanche teams, while Brian Steib and Mallory Weidner coached the teams from DCMS. “I am very proud of all the teams and students that competed,” Samuelson said in a news release. “This is not the first year for the meet; however, it was the first year that CMS hosted the event,” she added. “I had a great time hosting and running the meet. I attribute the success of the meet to the great group of volunteers I had.”
