Some kids in Mon County were also participating in a bowl of their own Saturday afternoon, but one that forced them to use their brains instead of brawn.
Thirteen high schools from all across the state participated in the 22nd annual Science Bowl.  Teams faced off in a round robin tournament, where they were asked science and math questions in a trivia format.
The bowl was held at the National Energy Technology Laboratory in Morgantown, and officials with the bowl stressed that students need to stay involved in science and math because there are going to be a lot of energy jobs opening up in the state over the next 20 years.
"There [are] 120,000 jobs that are going to be available in the next twenty years in this area and there are simply not enough people to fill those jobs. There's a tremendous opportunity, especially for those students who are in science and mathematics," Science Bowl Coordinator Kirk Gerdes told 5 News.
Parkersburg defeated Wheeling Park in the finals, while Morgantown High finished in third after placing fourth in nationals last year. Bridgeport High School finished in fourth.
