On March 27th, the GVHS Hi-Q Team took home the national championship! Competing against schools from Washington, Alabama, and Wisconsin, they eked out a win. Garnet Valley has been to national championships every year since 2010, with an exception of 2013. This is only one of their many wins, and of many more to come.
After progressing to local championships, held at Delaware County Christian School, against the home team and Radnor High School, Garnet Valley won the game away from home. This carried them to national championships, where they faced off against Crivitz High School (from Wisconsin), Baker High School (from Alabama), and Monroe (from Washington)!
According to Madame Dubnansky, one of the team’s staff advisors, one of the exciting moments of the competition occurred at the last question of nationals. Garnet Valley was behind, and the only thing that offered Garnet Valley a chance to win was the last toss up math question. After answering, all four teams had different answers to the question, furthering the intense air of suspense. Garnet Valley’s was the correct answer, and they managed to clutch the neck and neck game!
