Scholars Bowl Team Makes Impressive Run At Regionals
The Southwestern Heights Scholars Bowl team competed at Regionals in Hays on Thursday, February 1, 2018. The team went 5-3 in their pool and placed 3rd. The top 3 teams from each pool went on to compete in a round-robin for finals. After finishing finals with a 3-2 record, there was a five-way tie for first place between SWH, Cimarron, TMP, Scott Community, and Lyons. To break the tie, they looked at head-to-head match ups. There was still a five-way tie of 2-2 for each school. They next looked at points in those head-to-head match ups to decide who scored more points and lost by less. In the end, only 3 teams could move on to state. SWH wound up 4th overall, based on points. Scott Community placed first, TMP placed 2nd, and Cimarron placed 3rd. The team completed very well and it was a disappointing end to a great day of competition. But, they had a great year of competition and Mrs. Sheldon is very proud of all of them for their hard work. Team members include Brendan Smith (12), Grady Jacobs (12), Logan Cox (12), Jayde Reiss (12), Valick Sorter (10), and Christian Hernandez (12).

The SWH KAY Club Starts Year off with a Bang!
The SWH KAY Club kicked off its year with its annual membership party. For its membership drive, the goal was to get at least 30 members. The interest was so high that the limit of 30 was raised to accommodate more members. As a result, the KAY has 39 members this year.
The theme for this year is: Give your hands to SERVE, and your hearts to LOVE. Members are encouraged to serve and love others all year.
At the membership party, food, games and fun made the evening a great way to start the year. Team members were duct taped to columns, played Drop the Blanket, and Shuffle Your Buns. A good time was had by all! Each member was given their Walk-a-thon information to start their annual fundraiser. The Walk-a-thon is on Saturday, September 23.
As the club approaches the end of September, they are looking forward to upcoming events such as Game/Movie Night on Tuesday, September 26, See You At The Pole on Wednesday, September 27, and Denim/Hat Day on Friday, October 6.
