Last October six teams of students and coaches began weekly study sessions in preparation for the 2006-2007 Indiana Academic Super Bowl Season. The subject categories included English, math, science, social studies, fine arts and interdisciplinary. 296 schools participated in the academic program throughout the state. In our third year of competition–the State’s 21st year-we won a variety of ribbons at both South Side and Bishop Dwenger. At the Sectional Meet at Harding High School, Luers placed FIRST in five categories: English, math, social studies, fine arts and interdisciplinary! Based on the scores from that meet, the top six teams state-wide, in each of four school-size divisions, were invited to the State Finals held at Purdue on May 5.
The Math Team-Stephanie Ashburn, Brian Barker, Joe Crouch, Sujin Key, and Molly Schall- traveled to Purdue and brought home the BRONZE! In a close contest Bishop Luers scored 19 points out of a possible 25. Tell City placed first with 21 points and Park Tudor snatched second with 20 points.
Special thanks go out to Mrs. Karen Gregerson for organizing our Super Bowl Program. Special recognition is deserved by ALL of the SENIORS who worked hard for three years in developing this fine academic program! Coaches for each subject include the following: English-Mrs. Brodmerkel and Mr. Bubb; social studies-Mr. Main; science-Mr. Kruse; fine arts-Mrs. Sather and Mrs. Krouse; math-Mrs. Douglas, Ms. Kingsbury and Ms. Karst.
