Quiz Night 2010 A Huge Success

Scores of Staples soccer players, friends, parents, grandparents, teachers and random others crowded the Staples cafeteria last night for the 6th annual Quiz Night.

Raffle prizes — including an iPod Touch — augmented the race for 1st place.  In a nail-biting finish, a group of senior Wreckers  including Ryan Armour, Steve Denowitz, AJ Green and Connor Walsh edged out 2 other teams, including one with several other players augmented by permanent substitute, Superfan (and Staples Challenge team advisor) Jim Goodrich P’99, ’01.

Great thanks go to the many parents who volunteered their time and energy to make the event possible, spearheaded by varsity captains’ parents Mary-Lisa Bergonzi, Mary Ellen Gallagher and Jeanne Lesch, and prize coordinator Pam Evans.

Who knew that the average Model T got 28.5 miles per gallon?  That most American car horns beep in the key of F?  That Robert E. Lee graduated 1st in his West Point class?

The Staples soccer family knew — that’s who.

  1. And to think this entire time I considered all those years of conservatory education to be absolutely worthless…
