The Liberty Bell High School Knowledge Bowl team took first place in the North Central Regional 2B tournament on Monday (Feb. 25) at Wenatchee High School, and is now headed to the state tournament once again. It was the fifth consecutive regional win for Liberty Bell.
The competition included 17 programs from 2B- through 4A schools in the area. Moses Lake (4A) and Liberty Bell tied for the highest point totals of the evening with 116.
Liberty Bell won all of its match-ups, which consisted of four oral rounds of 50 questions and a 50-question written round. In the 2B division, Manson took second place with 65 points and Soap Lake took third with 45 points. Both are also going to the state tournament.
Liberty Bell took second place at last year’s state tournament and was the state champion the year before.
