The Bellwood-Antis scholastic team placed second in last week’s virtual scholastic scrimmage finals.

For anyone who doesn’t know how the scrimmages work, it is three preliminary rounds to determine the finalist, with all  teams answering the same question set at the same time. It was a one-day meet, with all top 8 teams competing against each other with the ability to steal questions missed by the opposing team.

Hollidaysburg came home with the championship after earning 7 victories. Bellwood-Antis was close behind with  5, and BG had 4.

“All teams members participated in several rounds and each person answered at least one question.  It was truly a team effort,” said team coach Mrs. Kathy Taylor. “The 9th grade students will join the senior high team next year, but we should still have  a strong team for junior high next year.  Students are looking forward to face-to-face competitions next year.”

The team from B-A consisted of a combination of 9th and 8th graders. The 9th graders were Seth Hollen, Vincent Cacciotti, and Chance Schreier. For 8th grade, Briley Campbell, Ryan Marinak, Holden Schreier, Derek Stivers, and Emily Zacker dotted the roster.
