FIRST-EVER QUIZNET TITLES FOR TWO SCHOOLS
After gaining 30 points on the AMERICAN REVOLUTION bonus, Barstow (FL) trails Hopkins West (MN), 105-100. Barstow got 30 on the GOLD bonus and took the lead. Hopkins West grabbed the lead back after gaining 15 points on the AFRICAN NATIONS bonus, but Barstow tied it up after stealing the 15-pointer.Hopkins West retook the lead after gaining 15 on the HISTORY OF THE NAZI PARTY bonus. Their slim lead at the end of the Bonus Round ballooned in the Stump the Experts round. They won the game, and their first QuizNet title, by a 435-315 margin over Barstow.
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.
