On May 31, 16 members of Siuslaw Middle School Knowledge Bowl Team traveled to Lane Community College to compete against 38 other middle school teams from around Lane County in the Lane County Brain Bowl competition.
In the end, one of the three teams from Siuslaw made the finals of the event and won first place, doubling the score of the second-place team in the finals.
The winning team consisted of seventh graders Landon Severy and Sam Castle and eighth graders Jeff Edmond, Ava Glowacki, Ian Sissel and Kyle Hughes.
It is the first time that a team from Siuslaw has won the competition. Last year, one of the teams placed fourth.
This was the final event for the Knowledge Bowl Team for the school year.
