REGION – Ludington High School students defeated Roscommon 290-270 on WCMU’s “Quiz Central”
“Ludington was excited to have the opportunity to play Quiz Central,” said Ludington coach Amber Nasson. “It was a fun season, and we appreciated the sense of normalcy it provided us in an abnormal year.”
The Ludington team included Emily Swist, Olivia Hill, Aidan deMorrow, and Lindy Murphy.
While each team demonstrated their impressive knowledge throughout the competition, equally impressive was the adaptability and resilience of all teams this season. Adapting to a virtual format—instead of being recorded in person within the WCMU Public Media television studio— brought unique challenges.
“Although competing in a manner where you do not see your opponents in real time was very different than we are used to, we would take it over the alternative of cancellation in light of the virus,” said Roscommon coach Jim Perialas.
Roscommon was represented by Jackson Thiel, Alex Thiel, MacArthur (Mac) Schultz, and Connor McNamara.
