REGION – Ludington defeated Roscommon 290-270 on WCMU’s “Quiz Central”
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 students Jackson Thiel, Alex Thiel, MacArthur (Mac) Schultz, and Connor McNamara.
Sixteen teams of Michigan high school students rose to the challenge of participating despite COVID-19, competing head-to-head to advance through rounds of the competition.
