    On April 10th the Bancroft-Rosalie Quiz Bowl Team traveled to Northeast Community College in Norfolk to compete in NECC Quiz Bowl championships. The competition included 28 teams from across northeast Nebraska and hosted over 140 students. The Panthers lost in the second round of the championship bracket, then clawed their way back to the third-place game where they lost to St.Mary’s O’Neill on a last-second question.

    The Bancroft-Rosalie Quiz Bowl Team took part in their last tournament of the year at the East Husker Conference Quiz Bowl Tournament on Monday, April the 15th at Bancroft-Rosalie High School. The Panthers drew Lyons-Decatur Northeast(LDNE), Stanton, and Twin River for pool play. In their first-round matchup, the Panthers tripled up LDNE winning 120-40 then quadrupled up Stanton 140-30. In their last pool play matchup, the Panthers faced off against the Titans from Twin River. The Titans made a late push comeback but the Panthers held on to win 90-70. This final win put them at 3-0 in pool play and great position for the tournament stage with tons of momentum

    The Panthers had such a great performance that they had a first-round bye in the tournament stage. After waiting through the first round the Panthers faced off with the Oakland-Craig Knights. The Panthers and Knights fought hard through the match with the Panthers coming out on top 90-55. The Panther then matched up with the Pender Pendragons in the semi-finals. At the beginning of the match, the Panthers and Pendragons were neck and neck, before the Panthers started to pull away and won 145-45. Pender went on to lose in the consolation match to Twin River 115-80. In the championship, the Panthers were set to face the West Point-Beemer Cadets. The two teams fought hard but unfortunately, the Cadets came out on top with a last-minute answer to win 90-85. Even though it didn't end how they expected the Panthers were still thrilled that they could earn second place and represent their school well.
