From February 24 to 27th, PASB competed in the Knowledge Bowl Tournament hosted by EARJ. Our school’s team, composed of our captain Eva Salustino (12), Brent Strong (12), Beatriz Sampaio (11) and Ryan Strong (9), won first place after nine matches and two competitive playoff games. In addition to our victory, this trip was extra special because it marked our seniors’ and Mr. Smith's last Knowledge Bowl tournament. Eva’s relentless enthusiasm (especially when trying to sound German) and Brent’s ability to be composed at all times (because the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Cold War are clearly synonyms) are surely going to be missed. Thank you both for making Knowledge Bowl such a fun and unforgettable experience, and a special thanks to Mr. Smith who never ceases to amaze us with his loving character.
