WARREN MIDDLE SCHOOL WINS IN THEIR FIRST-EVER QUIZNET GAME

Tuesday

Paideia B (GA) led the field by 35 after gaining 15 on the WARSHIP bonus.  A
dramatic solo shot gave Paideia B the breathing room they've been hoping for: “What tragedy with a two-word title tells of a guy who'd have to buy Mother's Day and Wedding Anniversary cards in the same year for the same person?”  (Ans. Oedipus Rex).  Paideia B won it by a 290-240 margin over Warren (NJ).

Wednesday League

Vanguard (FL) moved into second place, only 5 points behind Sparta's (NJ) lead, after a solo shot on an Architecture question: “Many architects are famous for individual buildings they've designed, but some are remembered for the cities they've designed.  For instance, Washington, D.C., was designed by Pierre L'Enfant.  What city was designed by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer?” (Ans. Brasilia, Brazil)  But Macon Central (GA) moved into the lead in the final period on this question: “The federal holiday of Columbus Day was made possible due to the lobbying efforts of what Catholic fraternal society?” (Ans. Knights of Columbus)  Vanguard had an excellent final period, but fell short to Central, 245-250.  It was the Georgia school’s first QuizNet win ever.
