The Senior Poultry team which consisted of Molly Lindgren of Wadena County and Elaina Knott, Jonathan Torstveit, and Jayce Lizakowski of Pennington County won the State Championship!  They received a team bonus in the first 3 matches they competed in.  A team qualifies for a team bonus when all 4 team members answer at least one question correctly in the second phase of the match.  Getting one team bonus at state is a pretty rare feat, so doing it three times in a row is unheard of.  Then they had to face the 3 time defending State Champions, Isanti County in the championship round.  Pennington/Wadena lost the first round but forced a rematch since each team then had one loss.  In the second match, our team emerged the winner and will go on to compete at the National Avian Bowl in Louisville, KY November 15-16.
