On a chilly January morning, two teams of four, one Maroon, one Gray set out on the ultimate quest: To prove their mastery of trivia knowledge to the entire school in the seventh annual Academic Bowl.

In the biggest blowout in Academic Bowl history, the Maroons, (Max, Lizzie, Chizabel and their fearless leader Will), came out on top against the Grays (Zach, Sherman, Khaleel, and Rawson [Captain]).

The Maroon squad jumped out to a commanding lead in the second round led by Max’s pop culture wizardry and Will’s knowledge of just about every category. Be it English, science, pop culture, sports, or geography, there was not one category in which Maroon showed any weakness. The entire history department was thoroughly impressed when Maroon was able to answer “Who was the last US president born in the 19th century?”.

Many thanks to all of the teachers who submitted questions, Mr. Pastore and Mr. Stewart for judging, and Mr. McGlone for helping with a great introduction. Maroon now leads the all-time series 5-2.

P.S. Of course you knew the answer to the question above was Dwight D. Eisenhower, right?
