PR’s scholastic bowl ​team had 3 tough matches in their last meet against Elgin, Burlington and finally, Huntley. We

won the first two matches by 10 points and 30 points, respectively. We beat a good Huntley team twice already this

year, but last night’s questions fell in the categories that they have really strong players in. We ended up losing in the

finals by only 30 points. So, please congratulate your scho-bowlers on an awesome season.
