WILD AND CRAZY FINAL WEEK OF REGULAR SEASON SEES THREE TEAMS WIN THEIR FIRST GAME

Tuesday

Paideia A (GA) vaulted into the lead after a Current Events solo shot: “He had strong words for the United States and its allies over growing tension between Moscow and the West, a development he believes has put the world ‘on the brink of a new Cold War.’ Who is this former head of the Soviet Union?” Ans. Mikhail Gorbachev They led the rest of the way. Paideia A makes the playoffs in the most dramatic way possible: by winning their first game on their last chance during regular season.

Wednesday League

Boonsboro (MD) took the lead, 150-125 over White Plains (NY) after a solo shot on the toss up and 30 points on the QUOTATIONS bonus. White Plain found themselves tied for the lead with Boonsboro after this solo shot: “At the time of its construction in 1940, this bridge was the 3rd longest suspension bridge in the world, but when its structural frequency was matched by strong winds causing forced resonance, this Washington state bridge collapsed into Puget Sound only four months after opening to the public. Name this failed suspension bridge, nicknamed Galloping Gertie.” (Ans. Tacoma-Narrows Bridge) Boonsboro re-took the lead on this Science question: “Give the technical term for the loss of water from leaves.” (Ans. Transpiration) A solo shot on a question about Ionesco’s play Rhinoceros put Boonsboro in the lead by 50, which ended up being their margin of victory.

What a way to qualify for the playoffs – on their last game of regular season! It was also Boonsboro’s first QuizNet win ever.
