Wilburton middle school academic team qualifies for area!!!!
The Wilburton Middle School academic team is off to a good start again this year. We are starting out with a very young team this year with only one returning player. The whole team from last year, except Jackson McCabe, moved up to the high school level.
They competed in districts at Heavener on Nov. 16th and came home with 2nd place plaque. They traveled to Valliant on Dec. 9th to compete in regionals. The matches were very close and Wilburton finished in a three-way tie for 2nd place with Idabel and Valliant. All three teams had the same win-loss record of 5-3 and were only separated by one question for final points. The young team fought back in the final round after being down by 40 points to win the game.
The team has qualified to compete in the area playoffs in February.
Team members consist of Caleb Roberts, Dakota Downum, Haylee Baker, Chelsea Holloway, Morgan Francis, Jackson McCabe, Anastasia Crane, Madison Posey, and Logan Pelt. The team is coached by Ms. Mary Kendrick.
