  • 7th Grade Scholars’ Bowl Win

    Last night, Independent hosted the first Middle School Scholars' Bowl tournament of the season. The 7th grade team went undefeated with 675 total points. Congrats to Grayson Jensen, Eli Aziere, Myles Loewen, Sierra Tinsley, Stella Veazey and Adam Stultz on a first place finish! The 8th grade team tied for first with win/loss totals but lost to Kingman on total points. It was an outstanding performance by Jett Schmidt, Edie Gill, Joey Bergeson, Satvik Kolla, Charlie Daood, TJ Lewis, Jayda Kelly and Nicole Moussa. Hosting an event like this takes a lot of time preparing so a special thank you goes out to sponsor, Dave McIntire, for his organization and amazing skills needed to pull off such a successful event. We also want to thank the many volunteers who helped (former students, high school students, middle school students, parents, and staff members from all three divisions). It was truly a team effort.
