HIGH TECH WINS THEIR THIRD CONSECUTIVE QUIZNET TITLE
Both Paideia (GA) teams are playoff-bound, and both played well in the last Junior QuizNet regular-season game. But Flushing (MI) won their fifth game in eight tries by a 60-point margin over Paideia1.
Those three will be joined by River Trail 1 (GA) and wild-card Marblehead (MA) in the title game, slated for Tuesday, Dec. 10, 4:00 Eastern.
A sweep of the IN THE NEWS bonus gave High Tech (NJ) a 190-125 lead over second-place Horace Greeley (NY) in the high school finals. Pingry (NJ) moved into second, trailing High Tech by only 295-315, after this solo shot: “The name of which French-speaking African nation derives from the Portuguese word for shrimp?” (Ans. Cameroon) Pingry trailed High Tech by only 10 after this Logic question: “Logicians divide these errors in reasoning into two types, formal and informal. What are we talking about?” (Ans. Fallacies) After Pingry got an Algebra question, look how close it was at the top: Greeley 330, Pingry 345, High Tech 350. A crucial late-game Current Events solo shot gave High Tech a little breathing room: “Israeli leaders called the recent agreement a ‘historic mistake’ and once again raised the threat of a potential military strike on Iran's nuclear sites. Which nation did Israel attack in the past to ruin a nuclear program?” (Ans. Iraq) High Tech ended up with 430; Greeley and Pingry tied for second at 375. This was High Tech’s third consecutive QuizNet title.
