Cameron High School Advances to West Virginia History Bowl Championship

Cameron High School will once again represent Region 6 in the West Virginia History Bowl championship in Charleston and is set to defend the state championship.

Cameron competed against eight other schools in the ninth annual Region 6 preliminary event held at West Virginia Independence Hall in Wheeling on Friday.

This year marks the seventh year in a row that Cameron High School has had a team compete for the state championship.

In the regional finals, Cameron Team 1 defeated Cameron Team 2. The championship winning team consists of Montgomery Bertram, Abbi Carney, Arielle Yost and Russell Dillion. Cameron Team 2 members include Chloe Yocum, Nathan Haeberle, Ian Elswick and Kaylee Reynolds.

Both Dragon teams, coached by Dan Gatts and Joe Mastracci, will participate at the state History Bowl competition on April 24.

St. Joseph the Worker School from Weirton placed third and Moundsville Middle School Team 1 finished fourth in the regional tourney.

The West Virginia History Bowl started in 2010 with 16 teams in the entire state. Since that time, participation has increased to more than 500 students from eight different regions in West Virginia.
