The Wadena-Deer Creek High School Knowledge Bowl team of juniors - Joey Pate, Josh Lund, Mike Paavola and Drew Larson - participated in the regional competition in Brainerd Feb. 28, where 21 teams were challenged in this academic quiz fest.

According to WDC Knowledge Bowl coach, Dawn Paurus, Knowledge Bowl is a sport for the mind. Setup like Jeopardy, but for teams, Knowledge Bowl involves fast-paced thinking and teamwork. Questions are based on the topics covered in high school, such as math, science, history, language skills, literature, music, geography, as well as current events.
