Broncos participate in first, last Scholastic Bowl

FRANKLIN
The Scholastic Bowl Team competed in the Region 1B Tournament virtually on Zoom in a round robin format.
The team worked hard and stayed dedicated for six hours on Saturday,  competing against four teams and enjoying a scrimmage match in between!
This was the first, and sadly, last outing for the team  this season
In the first match, Broncos competed with Cumberland, winning their first match of the season with a final score of 90-70.
In the second match, they competed with 2020 Class 1 State Runner-up Rappahannock; the Broncos played hard and ended the match with a loss of 10-235.
In the third match, they competed with the third place team in Class 1 for 2020, Galileo Magnet, with the Broncos playing hard until the end, finishing with a loss of 40-24.
In the last match of the day, they competed with the third place team in Class 1 for 2018, Riverheads, with the Broncos staying evenly matched until the end, finishing with a final score of 90-140.
With that, the Broncos finished with a record of 1-3, but gained a brand new experience of competing in a virtual environment.
The school thanks the players that were able to compete all six hours today in the tournament.
The players who competed all six hours were Anthony Bunn, Kayla Felts, Dalton Virtue, Skylar and Pacey Virtue.
This event was the last for three seniors:

  • Anthony Bunn, who plans to attend Old Dominion University
  • Kayla Felts, who plans to attend Virginia Tech
  • Dalton Virtue, who plans to attend trade school

The Broncos would like to thank the leadership at Galileo Magnet for hosting this virtual tournament.
