The Kimball Area High School Knowledge Bowl teams finished the season with much success. The Junior Varsity A Team consisting of Shelby Schiefelbein, Brittany Wittrock, Caitlyn Carr, Ted Zipoy, and Brandon Loch finished third overall in the Central Minnesota Conference.
The Varsity squad consisting of Dustin Opatz (12), Jon Bisila (11), Katelyn Lichte (11), Erin Diffley (10), and Ben Serbus (10) completed a record-breaking year for our Knowledge Bowl Squad. In Subregions the team finished third of an 18-team field. This is the best finish in the Subregion Meet by Kimball ever! This placing advanced the team to regions in which they were representing the second smallest school of
18 teams. Although small, they were not without might, placing 13th of 18 teams, another record for Kimball, and being just 11 points shy of qualifying for the State Knowledge Bowl meet at Cragun's in Brainerd. This caps off a great career by Dustin Opatz as his shoes will be difficult to fill. As he graduates, the Knowledge Bowler's wish him well in all of his future endeavors.
