After challenging Saint Thecla, Saint Edward, Saint Mary of the Woods, Saint Paul of the Cross and Our Lady of the Wayside, in the final round, Saint Anne prevailed over the undefeated Saint Paul of the Cross team creating a three way tie. The total points rule was utilized as the tie-breaker between Saint Paul of the Cross, Our Lady of the Wayside and Saint Anne Parish School. With the highest score, the Saint Anne team took the high honors of first place!!!!
Moderator Mr. Terry Ehardt says “It was nice to see all of the practice time and dedication pay off at such a key time in a championship match”. And team captain Jack Hoppe says this win marks an impressive first for the Saint Anne School’s Scholastic Bowl team. “It is the first time we have won at Notre Dame. There were five matches and it was hard to make it through the night. We had a five man team with five substitutes. We were facing some large schools and I could not be prouder.”
Earlier this month, two teams of six traveled to St. Viator for a twelve team competition, finishing in 1st with a record of 4-0. The Cardinals conquered Saint Emily, Saint James, Saint Paul of the Cross and Our Lady of the Wayside on the way to the championship.
