ANKENY, Iowa (October 28, 2016) - The Southview Middle School ninth grade team won the State Knowledge Bowl Championship at DMACC on October 27.  The students scored Southview's first-ever Division II Knowledge Bowl State Championship against more than 40 high school teams from around Iowa.
“I am so proud of these students," said Knowledge Bowl coach Nathan Coombes.  "The fact that our ninth graders competed with juniors and seniors from across the state shows us what great faculty and schools we have here in Ankeny."
The contest includes questions in music, history, English, science, math, and random knowledge.  The team consists of freshmen: Carter Tams, Nathan Greiner, Sam Wu, Jackson Porter, and Jacob Staab.
