Scholar Bowl Update

So, there they were, on the final night of competition in the MRVC Conference Scholar Bowl regular season. On the eve of the Conference tournament with seeding at stake. Your Yellowjacket Academic Team had a challenging night ahead – 3 matches against some very good teams. It would bring them to the end of their conference season and usher in the conference tournament. This was their first season in the MRVC, and up until tonight, they had not been beaten in conference play.

Now, they have had SEVERAL very close games. In fact, 4 of their 12 matches had come down to the final two or the final question of the match. Several matches could have gone either way for this Yellowjacket team. But they were persistent and relentless all year!

So tonight, they knew they had to be at their best and sharpest to defeat these final 3 teams and finish with a perfect record. Well, you know their names, and you already know the outcome because you have been following this team all year!

We won all three matches with scores of 440-120, 410-170, and 400-70!

Yes ladies and gentlemen, your Yellowjackets came ready to play! And Play they did - - - they have officially ended the regular season of the MRVC Conference matches with a perfect 12-0 Record!!!!!!

Tomorrow, Thursday March 4 the team should be back at almost full strength (minus Alex, maybe!?!) to begin their “march” thru the conference tournament. Yes, March Madness begins tomorrow in the MRVC Scholar Bowl Competition with your Yellowjackets as the #1 Seed!

The pressure is on. We have had such a great run thru the regular season we are hoping to be able to finish strong in the tournament against some VERY GOOD teams who definitely want a rematch. Stay tuned and to find out how the conference season ends up.

MRVC Regular Season – 12 wins, 0 losses

Overall Record: 14 wins, 3 losses
