Riverside High School Academic Team had a very successful season. Although we have had a team in the past, this year’s team was involved in more tournaments through the Iowa Quiz Bowl League. The team was co-coached by Bonnie Kramer and Coralee Bernard. Here are the season statistics:
Nov 5, 2021 –IQBL Western Iowa Fall Open at Logan Magnolia HS
We took seven students, making up two teams. Team B, made up of Brett Feuring, Kyler Rieken, Paxtyn Meek, and Madi Sparr received 1st place in the JV division. Brett was high scorer with 235 points. Team A, made up of Abe Schechinger, Keaten Rieken, and Anthony Bernard received 3rd place. Abe was the high scorer with 240 points. The JV division was for teams made up of freshmen and sophomores.
Dec 4, 2021 -Boyer Valley Invitational
We took one team and received 3rd place in the JV division. This wasn’t an Iowa Quiz Bowl League tournament so we don’t have detailed stats from this one.
Dec 18, 2021 –IQBL Solo Challenge
We took four students, Abe, Brett, Paxtyn, and Keaten, who competed individually throughout the day. Abe and Brett both made it to the championship round and had the same total points of 245, but Abe actually scored more in the championship round and won the small school division.
In January we began competing in the B103 radio quiz bowl tournament. They would call in to two schools and ask three questions of each team. The winning team moved on in the single elimination bracket. Our team made it through five rounds before losing.
Also in January, Anthony, Paxtyn, and Brett spent a Saturday at school participating the the Nationwide Novice Tournament via Zoom. It was a long day with difficult questions. We did not place, but it was a great experience for them.
Feb 19, 2022 –IQBL Winter Open at Ankeny Centennial
Team A, made up of Brett, Paxtyn, Anthony, and Keaten made it to the semi-finals with a 5-2 record. Brett was high scorer for our team with 385 points all together.
Team B was Kyler, Abe, and Madi. They were in the consolation bracket with a 3-4 record. Abe was high scorer for that team with 315 points.
Mar 16, 2022 –Western Iowa Conference Quiz Bowl at AHSTW
Team B–Brett, Abe, and Keaten won the tournament. Team A wasn’t too far behind, but as it wasn’t an IQBL tourney, individual stats were not kept.

Riverside B, made up of Brett, Abe, Paxtyn, and Keaten won 2nd place. Brett scored 280 and Abe scored 230.
