Super Bowl Team – Area

The RCHS Academic team participated in the Area Super Bowl competition on April 16 at Batesville. The highlight of the night came from social studies team members Amy Neuman and Kristen Clines who finished first for the division two schools and second overall. The team score narrowly missed qualifying for state competition as they finished eighth in the state by virtue of tie breakers. The science team consisting of Tyler Netherly, Kevin McMinn and Carrington Houser took second place in the division. Kevin McMinn, Tyler Netherly, Amy Neuman and Brittany Pate made up the interdisciplinary team that led all teams until the last three questions and ended in second place for the division. Amy Neuman and Kristen Clines took third place on the English team. The math team and fine arts team also participated in the competition but did not place in the top three of their division. The coaches would like to congratulate all the super bowl teams for their hard work in preparing for these competitions.
