The Chariton Academic Team competed in the 29th Annual Regional High School Science Bowl at Iowa State University on Saturday Jan. 26. The Science Bowl is hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Ames Laboratory on the ISU Campus.
The Chariton team members were Logan Caudill, Shelby Dobberthein, Stan Kutsel, Mark Pyatak, and Garret Roach. Only one team was allowed per school and Chariton’s team did not place at the tournament. They did well in morning pool play but didn’t score well enough on a tiebreaker to make it to the afternoon rounds.
There were 40 teams from all size of schools from around the state. Teams were broken up into eight pools of five teams. Teams play every other team in their pool and the top two teams advance to a 16-team double-elimination bracket for the afternoon. Chariton ended up in a pool with Earlham, North Liberty, Madrid, and Woodbury Central.
