Two GSL Knowledge Bowl teams heading to state

Glencoe-Silver Lake will send two teams back to the state meet next month at Cragun’s Resort near Brainerd April 10-11.
The defending Class A state champs, GSL advanced from a regional competition Friday, March 8, where 18 teams advanced from 36 teams competing at the sub-region level.
GSL co-coach Vicky Harris said the region competition was “mind-boggling.” The team is thrilled it will be so well represented at state. “What a good day GSL had on Friday,” she said.
GSL Black started out tied for first place with a written score of 44. The team finished atop the standings in room one in oral rounds with scores of 17-9-6, 18-6-3, 13-12-4, and 9-6-5. In the first two rounds, GSL Black defeated New London-Spicer, Hutchinson, and Willmar.
In the final two rounds the second highest team was GSL Purple, which had moved up from room three and was determined to be one of the three teams who qualified for state. GSL Black won the meet with 107 points, while GSL Purple took third with 82. Hutchinson finished second with 84.
