Haven Health Bowl Challenge Coach Kristin Wahlgren led her team to victory again this year in the middle-school contest sponsored by NorthShore University HealthSystem. The championship team was composed of seventh-graders Margaret Eisfelder and Chirasree Mandal and sixth-graders Beni Keown and Jack Ruder, with alternates Joe Meyer, Andrew Borland, Mattias Vanderferf and Claire Ivey.
Teams from Bessie Rhodes, King Lab, Chute and Nichols answered questions on four topics: the human body and body systems, disease prevention, global issues and health and nutrition.
Assisting Ms. Wahlgren as co-coaches were Lily McCartney, Bailey Busser and Annika Demarche, members of the Haven team that won last year’s championship.
Mark Schroeder, director of Community Relations for Evanston Hospital, said of the back-to-back champions, “A dynasty is forming here.”
