Staples boys soccer’s 7th annual Quiz Night may have been the best yet.
There was plenty of heated competition — did you know pepperoni is the most popular pizza topping in America? that Philippe Woog invented the electric toothbrush? that after having sex, a praying mantis eats the male? — along with great raffle prizes, food, and fun.
The winning team included Steve Bender, Tom Beusse, Peter Bradeen, Jeanne McCarron, Bob Scott, Jeff Shikowitz and Justine Shikowitz
The event raised a whopping $
7,785 $8,010. Those funds will help pay for many program-related costs, including the banquet; the boys soccer team’s annual contribution to the construction of the Wakeman B turf field; the Loeffler Field terrace renovation, scholarships and more.
The varsity captains’ parents — Tom Greenwald and Cathy Utz, and Ned and Tina Hickok — helped lead the event, with spectacular help from many, many, many others. The Staples boys soccer team thanks all who donated or collected raffle prizes, helped with scoring, food, set-up and clean-up, and in any other way.
