AMI day two work is due today.

The WR Senior High Quiz Bowl Team competed in two tournaments this weekend and represented our Bobcat nation with distinction. The team was awarded the 2nd place trophy in the District Tournament on Friday and went undefeated in the Regional Tournament on Saturday. Their 1st place finish at Regionals secured them a spot to compete in the State Tournament in April.  Graham West was recognized as the Regional MVP which also qualifies him for the All-Star State Quiz Bowl team. Way to go Bobcats!
