REEDS SPRING, Mo. – Reeds Spring’s Scholar Bowl team may one day be the answer to a trivia question: Which school won back-to-back district championships in 2017 and 2018?
The Wolves earned this year’s title defeating Cassville in the final round, 310-230. RSHS also beat Forsyth, Hollister, and Monett in earlier rounds. Seniors Justin Bible and Calvin Rasmussen earned spots on the All-District team for the second year in a row.
Since March 1, the RSHS varsity and JV teams are 27-4, including the varsity’s win at Greenwood, the JV’s second-place finish at the COC-Small Tournament, and varsity’s third-place finish at the conference tournament.
This district win gives RSHS its fourth title since 2010. The team will compete against Springfield Catholic in the Sectional on Tuesday, April 24.
