On Saturday, April 8, three schools competed for the Class 3 District 8 title in Scholar Bowl. Forsyth, Hollister, and Reeds Spring played a morning preliminary round which saw Hollister go 3-0, Reeds Spring 2-1 and Forsyth 1-2.
Due to an odd number of teams, each team received a bye during the preliminary matches. In the afternoon final, Reeds Spring edged out Hollister 250-230 to win the Class 3 District 8 title, its first since 2012.
Reeds Spring will travel to Strafford on Wednesday, April 26 to play Strafford in a best two out of three sectionals match. The winner will advance to the State Scholar Bowl tournament on Saturday, May 6.
The Reeds Spring team consists of Justin Bible, Calvin Rasmussen, Katyalynn Bourgeois, Marshall Megellas, Eric Pritchard, Dakota Deets, Jack Stone, Jarom Allphin, Alex Bowman, Jack Stebbins and Hunter Raymond. Zane Henry is also on the team but was unable to make the tournament.
