Quiz Team defeats LaSalle
The St. X Quiz Team defeated LaSalle on two levels today:
- The Varsity team struck a win again, 67–33.
A couple of highlights: At one point in the match, our team quadrupled their score at 24–6. Larry Stosman once rang in on accident. When asked to give an answer, he replied, “Uh, I don’t know ——— merchantilism?” He was right.
- The Junior Varsity / 1st Reserve team creamed LaSalle 86–38. James Ficker, aka “Godzilla” was so elated today when, finally, there was a question on Japan: “What is the largest mountain peak on the Japanese island Honshu?” (or thereabouts). His correct answer? “Mount Fuji”. Afterwards, he commented, per usual, “That’s where Godzilla defeated all monsters…” After hearing the word Godzilla, I tuned out. It’s typical of him to think in terms of that big lizard.
Well, that’s Academic Sports in a Minute. For Minh’s Notes, I’m Minh himself.
