East Scholastic Bowl team's Annual Teacher Scrimmage had an incredible turnout by students and teachers. There were two full games - one Varsity and one Frosh-Soph. It was an exciting match amongst both squads! In the Frosh-Soph game, the team jumped out fast, building a 170-point lead. The teachers came back with a strong second half led by Mrs. Arme's 50 tossup points to close the gap, but the Frosh-Soph players were able to put up just enough points to hold on to win 310-250. Ms. Graham, Mr. Watters, Mr. Olson, and Mrs. Venezio also put up points for the teachers. In the Varsity game, it was the teachers who sprinted out of the gate, led by Mr. Eiden and Mr. Leonard, taking a commanding 170-60 lead. This time it was the players who clawed back, rattling off 6 straight tossups, and winning 11 of 13. Varsity won by a score of 410-300, with Mr. Trayser, Mrs. Gonzalez-Jensen, and Ms. Reusz also contributing points on tossups and bonuses for the teachers.
