Wednesday

Having been absent for the first half-dozen questions, Detroit Jesuit (MI) swept the first bonus -- MATH -- and took a 180-140 lead over Phillipsburg (NJ). In the final period, a solo shot put Phillipsburg right up there ... trailing Detroit 235-230: “An American historian and journalist won the Pulitzer Prize in 1954 for his book A Stillness at Appomattox. His other works include Mr. Lincoln's Army and Glory Road. In 1954, he became editor of American Heritage Magazine. Name him.” (Ans. Bruce Catton) But Detroit took charge, and never trailed in the final period. They almost got to 500 … and Phillipsburg became the first team ever to score 400 but not win. This was Detroit Jesuit’s first-ever QuizNet title.
