“Now, we prepare for the state competition on Saturday, May 4th at U of I!” reports Coach Bill Gottschalk.
You can support the team by participating in the “Trivia Night Like No Other” fundraiser on Saturday, March 30 at the First United Presbyterian Church in Collinsville. Doors open at 6 pm.
Not as smart as a CHS mathlete? Don’t worry, cell phones are allowed during the timed rounds and Coach Gottschalk says there are questions for every level of knowledge.
“One category will incorporate math,” he says, “Don’t worry, most of it is basic math. And your cell phone has a calculator, remember?”
