Have you heard the exciting news? Our Belle Fourche High School Knowledge Bowl team had their first meet of the season over the weekend at Douglas High School, and with true Bronc hard work and determination, took first place at the meet!

During a total of one written round and four buzzer rounds with each round of sixty questions, Belle Fourche High School seniors Theodore Long and Brodie McNeese, along with sophomore Merik McNeese, stepped up to the challenge to beat out teams from Spearfish, Lead-Deadwood, Douglas, STM, and Sturgis!

The written round was scored with each question equaling a tenth of a point, while the buzzer rounds were awarded points based on who answers the most questions correctly overall.
