Quiz Team first and second at Northmont
Yesterday, the St. X Quiz Team participated in the Eighth Annual NACT. Here are the results:
- The Varsity team of Nathan Rudy, Matt Luby, Larry Stosman, and Robert Hobohm won all five preliminary rounds, and advanced to the playoffs. They finally faced Beavercreek in the finals, and lost due to a difference in the average points scored per game.
- The Junior Varsity team of Joe Knadler, Greg Lim, Sayre, and Seifried also won all five preliminaries, and advanced to the playoffs. They faced Wyoming in round seven, and easily won. Quite fortunately, our team correctly answered a question about Saint Francis Xavier, our school’s namesake.
- The Freshmen team was not permitted to play in the tournament.
- Shawn Berber and I volenteered as timer and scorekeeper for the “bye” rounds in Room 115. We did fine, except that we screwed up the seventh round alphabet round. It’s a long story; I don’t really want to discuss it.
They served Subby’s Subs (yum!) and Papa John’s pizza, in case you ever wanted to know.
