Moran’s Kids’ Lit Quiz Teams competed last night. There were 31 teams in last night’s heat and the top three teams advanced to the US Finals.
We had two teams finish in the top 10. It was tough competition. The team that took first place was from Virginia and only missed 11 out of 100 questions all night. They are the team that won the world finals in Singapore last year.
Tied for fifth place – Team 3 (Jack Angelastro, Jack Cerrato, Alex Miller, Richard Yeung)
Jack Angelastro also won a $5 question (questions that are asked in between rounds while they are scoring them).
They won the top score of a category and each got a book. They were the only team all night (out of 31) to get the maximum points of 20 for their doubles
Tied for sixth place (1/2 point behind team 3) – Team 1 (Gabriella Cozzi, Irelynn Marshall, Cole McDonnell, Katie Russell)
They won for top score of a category and each got a book.
