The Rye High School Knowledge Bowl Team finished fifth out of 11 3A teams at the state tournament held at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, on March 13-14.
The team, composed of Vance Zoeltsch, Catie Wolyn, Ben Cason, Sam Wolyn, and Connor Voss, was ranked eighth out of 60 teams in all five classifications at the end of the first day.
The written test starting the second day’s events slowed up the Thunderbolts and they lost their edge and ended up in the middle of the pack.
“Had we still been in 2A,” surmised faculty sponsor Cole Mcgee, "we would have gotten into the championship round and only been five points off the lead. But we aren’t 2A anymore.”
