Cathedral 5th & 6th graders participate in the Buchanan County AcademicBowl competition each year.
Under the direction of an Academic Bowl coach, the team competes against Academic Bowl teams from St. Paul Lutheran, North Andrew, Rushville, DeKalb, Stewartsville, Osborn, and South Nodaway. Competitions are weekly for 6-8 weeks during the fall. Practices take place weekly over working lunches in St. Ann's Meeting Room. Please call the office if you are interested in being a coach or if you would like for your child to participate. They do not have to attend all of the meets to be on the team.
