Ironwood Wiz Kids Move  On!

Ironwood - December 21, 2009

The Ironwood Quiz Bowl team went to Marquette this past week to compete against their counterparts from Gwinn. It was the same two schools that met in the High School Bowl Championship Game last winter. The Gwinn team bested the Red Devils in that match, but it was a new story with a different ending Wednesday. By the buzzer rang ending the match the score was Ironwood 250 Gwinn 80.

Wednesday the Red Devil coach Steve Boyd was unable to accompany the team to Marquette. However, Steve placed the team in the competent hands of Stephanie Mazzon, who obviously did all that could have been asked of her.

Luther L. Wright principal, Tim Kolesar told us that he believed that this year’s team was an even stronger team than last year’s great team.

The Gwinn match will be aired on WMNUTV on Saturday January 23rd. An Encore presentation is usually the following Sunday or Monday.

The Red Devils will return to Marquette in Mid-February to oppose the winner of the Gladstone-West Iron Game.

Bessemer won its second round match two weeks ago against Brimley. Another big victory. That game airs January 2nd.

At this point last year, we went out on a limb and correctly predicted the two teams that would meet in the final match. This year it’s a little more difficult. Ironwood and Bessemer are in different brackets, which holds out the possibility that the two teams could meet in the Championship Game. Wouldn’t that be great?
