ILWACO, Wash. - For the sixth year in a row, Ilwaco High School students have been invited to appear on the TV quiz show, "High Five Challenge," sponsored by the Lazy Boy Furniture Gallery.

The show, which is taped at the KWBP studios in Portland, pits school teams from Oregon and Washington against each other with 50 questions and answers from 10 categories including geography, science, history, trivia, sports and arts and entertainment. Two years ago, the team from Ilwaco placed third.

Representing Ilwaco this year are Chris Mistkin, Amanda Cunningham, Grant Lehman, Megan Saunders, Cory Bardonski and Alexandrea Jolivet. The team is coached by Larry Parsons.

Ilwaco's match against Forest Grove High School can be seen at 11 a.m Saturday, on KWBP (channel 3 on local cable) and on KONG TV Seattle (available on Dish Network satellite) at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 1.
