ANKENY, Iowa (October 27, 2017) - The Southview Middle School Academic team placed second at the State Knowledge Bowl finals at DMACC in Ankeny on October 26.  The freshman team lost on the last question against Des Moines Christian High School in the finals.  The questions consisted of music, art, math, science, history, literature, and random knowledge.


"I'm amazed on how well they did at this competition. I forget sometimes that these students are in ninth grade," said Nathan Coombes Ankeny Quiz Bowl coach.  This team will continue to make Ankeny proud for years to come."
