Calloway brings home science bowl title

Staff report

Calloway County High School won the U.S. Department of Energy's West Kentucky Regional Science Bowl, beating out 17 other high school teams.

Calloway will represent western Kentucky in the DOE's National Science Bowl, which will be held in Washington in late April.

While at the national competition, Calloway will compete in the same fast-paced, question-and-answer format that was used in the regional competition. The students also will visit national monuments and museums.

Bowling Green-based Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science finished second and Paducah Tilghman High School finished third in the regional competition, held at Crounse Hall on the University of Kentucky College of Engineering-Paducah Campus.

Calloway captain Landon Fike credited the victory to the work ethic of teammates Cody Bergman, Sam Morehead, Josh Betts and Hudson Elliott.

"If you assign them a topic, they're going to take it home and study it," he said. "You can just rely on them to get it done."

McCracken County, Ballard Memorial, St. Mary, Fulton County, Henderson County, West Kentucky Home Schools United, and Union County also competed. Seven of the 10 schools competing sent two teams.

The Science Bowl is a community-sponsored project. Contributions from local and regional businesses help pay for trophies, T-shirts, lunch and prizes for participating students, and provide prize money for the winning school's science department.
