Second at State Knowledge Bowl

Southview Middle School placed second in the Iowa State Knowledge Bowl High School Championships. The team, consisting of students in eighth and ninth grades, took on small high school teams from across Iowa.


The championship match was a three-way tie headed into the last question of the event. PCM took home the title, but Southview won the playoff against Ogden High School for second place. The contest includes questions from geography, history, literature, science, and math.


"I am amazed and very proud of these students," said Nathan Coombes, Ankeny Quiz Bowl Coach.  "The fact that these are eighth and ninth-graders going up against juniors and seniors shows us our school district is amazing."
