WORTHINGTON - For the second consecutive year, Worthington High School is sending a Knowledge Bowl team to state competition.

 

The five-member cohort of Worthington 1, comprised of Kalen Brands, Jack Johnson, Davis Moore, Sean Souksavath and AJ Wass, placed second out of 38 teams in the Southwest/West Central Service Cooperative’s Region 8 contest at Marshall on Tuesday.

 

They scored 88.5 points en route to the runner-up slot, which was good enough to qualify them for the state tournament as the top three teams advance.
