Girls Basketball

Wade Mortenson, Head Girls Basketball Coach

This is my third year teaching and coaching here at Pillager.  I have lived in the city of Pillager for about seven years with my wife Amanda, and daughters Hailea and Mady.  I teach social studies classes that include history, civics, and geography at the middle school level.  I also have had the opportunity to be involved in Pillager athletics by coaching year round.  Out of the sports that I coach, basketball is my passion.  I have been involved with basketball since elementary school.  Whether I am playing, or coaching, basketball is a sport that I can't get enough of.  I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to lead the girls' basketball program this upcoming season.  With the players that we have returning, along with some young talent, we have the potential to be very competitive as a team.  We are going to have a group of girls who will work hard to be successful.

Knowledge Bowl

High School coached by Mr. Bentson
Knowledge Bowl documents will be posted below for teams & current scores once we begin the season. 

Middle School coached by Mr. Berent

from Wikipedia: Knowledge Bowl is an interdisciplinary academic competition involving teams of four students trying to answer questions in a written round and several oral rounds. No team is eliminated in this event, and every team participates in every round. Knowledge Bowl is a power competition in which team groupings are rearranged after each round on the basis of their total points accumulated. The written round is a multiple-choice exam taken by each team as a whole. Results of this round are used for seeding teams in the oral rounds. In the oral rounds, there are three teams per room. A reader presents the questions, and a team member may buzz in as soon as he or she chooses. If they miss a question, nothing is deducted, but the other teams then may try to answer the question based on who buzzed in first. The winner is the team with the greatest number of points at the end of the meet.
