RIVERDALE FROM OHIO WINS ITS FIRST QUIZNET GAME EVER

Tuesday

Paideia A (GA) took a 10-point lead over Riverdale (OH) after getting 30 on the COMPOSERS bonus. Flushing (MI) jumped into the lead after gaining 30 points on the AILMENTS bonus.  Riverdale retook the lead, but a dramatic solo shot for Flushing puts them into a 225-225 tie with Riverdale: “This passage refers to what kind of animal fossils?  “Judging from marks the large muscles left at their attachment points on the pelvis, they weren't as prominent as they are on modern species.  These creatures wouldn't have won any contests in Calaveras County.” (Ans.  Frogs)  With a strong “Stump the Experts” round, Riverdale came out on top, by a 325-300 margin over Flushing.  It was the Ohio school’s first QuizNet win ever.
