Who is Ponoka Composite High School?

Judges look on as two schools square off in the Reach for the Top tournament at Ponoka Composite High School.

The clue: This school won the senior division of the Reach tournament.

Ponoka Composite High School hosted 26 teams at the zone championship on March 17.

The tournament features a variety of questions ranging in difficulty and subject matter from history to popular trivia.

Teams compete in groups of four and go head-to-head against other schools in a Jeopardy-style game involving buzzers and two judges — unfortunately Alex Trebek didn’t make it out for the competition.

“The tournament went well overall with some very close games,” said PCHS coach Gary Hoogers.

PCHS took top spot in the senior division, while Crestomere was first in the intermediate division and Lacombe took the junior division.

“Our teams began practicing in October, often twice a week and some of the Grade 12s have been doing this for four years and are very excited to be going to provincials,” said Hoogers.

“And we’ll continue to practice leading up to provincials as the kids look to compete for a chance at going to Ottawa in May for nationals.”

Provincials will take place on April 16 in Calgary.
