AXTELL, Kan. – Axtell, Kan. High School marched through the consolation bracket and defeated Lourdes Central Catholic (Nebraska City) twice in the championship to secure the 2nd Annual B103 Quiz Bowl title on Wednesday morning.
18 schools across southeast Nebraska, southwest Iowa and northeast Kansas answered questions in areas of math, science, geography, history, current events and pop culture on Nebraska City radio station KBIE-FM (103.1 FM and b103.fm) over the last two months.
Axtell team captain Marina Bussing says they were pumped to win the championship after making a few adjustments following their loss to HTRS on Feb. 27.
“We had to swap out some players and put my brother on the team, so that might have helped.”
Axtell had to win five elimination match-ups, including wins over the defending champions Griswold and the defending runner-up HTRS, to reach the championship match.
