Pinkerton Academy tops Dover High in Granite State Challenge
Pinkerton Academy was represented by Captain Ben Foley, Sara Tridenti, Jake Hudgins and Joe Ronca, and coached by Peter Crowell and Pam Griswold.
Pinkerton Academy now advances to the semifinals of Granite State Challenge.
It takes a winning combination of knowledge, teamwork, grace under pressure, and a quick buzzer reflex to play. The show brings New Hampshire's top high school academic teams head to head in lively competition. The game emphasizes quick recall of material in all major disciplines - math, science, social studies, language and fine arts - along with a mix of questions about current events, entertainment, sports, and regional topics.
The winner of the Granite State SuperChallenge receives $1,000, a trophy and a champion banner for their school; the runner-up school receives $500 and a trophy. The SuperChallenge winner will compete for the Governor's Cup against the winner of the WGBH Boston High School Quiz Show at the end of the season.
