Pictured L-R: Scobey student athletes Kierra Tuggle, Cortni Robson, Jackson Oie, Jeremy Handy and Landen Kilgore take a break from competition at The Loaded Toad coffee shop in downtown Glasgow on March 29.

Scobey High Principal Bryan Pechtl led a group of five students into Glasgow's south side during the high school portion of the Academic Olympics at Glasgow High School on March 29. Apart from patronizing our burgeoning downtown, the Scobey contingent did well in the competition, with four of the five students taking ribbons. Jackson Oie took first place in Social Studies and first place for 9th Graders in Class 2. The entire team also took second place in the Oral Competition, losing out to Hinsdale.

To participate, students took written tests in the morning, consisting of English, Social Studies, Science, and Math. After lunch, students faced off in the oral rounds, much like Jeopardy, to face questions in the same subject areas.

According to Pechtl, the Junior High portion of the event will take place on Wednesday, April 5 from approximately 8:20 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at GHS.
