CCHS Wins Regional Science Bowl, Advances to Nationals


On Friday, February 11, 2022, the Calloway County High School Academic Team competed in the Department of Energy’s Regional Science Bowl hosted by the DOE’s Paducah Site. The contest, held virtually for the second year, drew high schools from western Kentucky and southern Illinois, including Kentucky’s Calloway County, Marshall County, McCracken County, Union County and Massac County of Illinois. 

In each round the Lakers played against all other teams, where total points determined advancement. The Lakers played five consecutive matches, advancing from each subsequent elimination round with scores of 100, 44, 48, 52, and a final winning score of 74. The Lakers edged out 2nd place Paducah Tilghman and 3rd place McCracken County to take first place overall. 

The Laker’s Regional win earns them an all-expense paid trip to the National Science Bowl in Washington, DC April 28- May 2, 2022 in Washington, DC.
