The Scotland County campus bowl team claimed the Lewis & Clark Conference championship with a perfect run at the league tournament held March 14th. Despite opening the day as the #4 seed, SCR-I won five straight contests to be crowned conference champs.
Scotland County opened play versus Marceline and posted a 300-250 win. The Tigers jumped out to a big 230-110 halftime lead before Marceline battled back to within 30 points late in the match. Morgan Blessing and Anna Triplett beat the buzzer on back-to-back toss-up questions to help SCR-I close out the win. The duo combined to answer eight toss-up questions in the win.
SCR-I got off to a similar quick start in game two, jumping out to a 250-70 halftime lead over Schuyler County. The Tigers did not let up on the gas, pouring it on in the second half to cruise to a 430-230 victory. Zac Behrens led the way, answering seven toss-up questions while Blessing answered six.
The Tigers kept the momentum rolling with another big win, blasting Harrisburg 390-190 to close out the first round with a perfect 3-0 mark. Behrens answered six toss-up questions in the win.
Scotland County entered the final bracket play as the #3 seed and a first round match-up versus Paris. The score was knotted at 100-100 after the first 10 questions before SCR-I pulled away for a 330-220 win. Paris actually outperformed SCR-I on the buzzer, posting an 11-8 advantage on toss-up questions. The Tigers did their heavy lifting on the bonus questions, scoring 230 points.
That changed in the championship game. Behrens answered eight toss-up questions, matching the Fayette team total. That was more than enough for SCR-I to fly past the Falcons 310-230 to claim the league title. Blessing and Erica Yarbrough each answered two toss-ups in the win.
Behrens and Blessing both earned First Team All-Conference honors for their tournament performance. Triplett was named Second Team All-Conference.
