TCS Crowns Geography Bee Champ (Reed Mertens – 19 January 2015)

Pictured (l-r) are Reed Mertens, 2015 Geography Bee Champion at Thorp Catholic School, and Jack Syryczuk, runner up.

On Monday, January 19, the Thorp Catholic School’s entire student body filed into the school’s chapel to see a select group of students compete in the 2015 Geography Bee.

Kayllee LeCloux and Paige Peterson (grade 5); Brynn Luzinski, Reed Mertens, Jack Syryczuk, and Lucas Krueger (grade 6); Carley Ciolkosz (grade 7); and Courtney Frankewicz, Lucas Petranovich, and LJ Schmelzer (grade 8) each took turns answering questions about bodies of water, weather conditions of geographical regions, and other portions of the world until the group of ten participants were down to two.

In the championship round, the two remaining participants had to answer the best of three questions. In the end, Reed Mertens was crowned the 2015 Geography Bee champion and Jack Syryczuk came in second.
