Tom Diaz, Theo Griffin and John Santos -- members of team 'Go Get a Rock' -- won the 2012 Lexington Education Foundation Trivia Bee last night at Cary Hall.
One team member, John Santos, is making a habit of winning the popular annual competition - it is the third consecutive year he has been on a winning team!
Seven 'swarms' competed for the title by answering such challenging questions as "What is the name of the thing that casts the shadow on a sundial?" and "Who was Prime Minister of England before Margaret Thatcher."
There were many Lexington-themed questions, but perhaps the most interesting one was the question asked by Dr Ash in his introduction: To name the two statues standing in the foyer of Cary Hall. The answer being John Hancock and Samuel Adams.
Before the final commenced, two teams from Swarm 4 came back to the stage. A rare incorrect answer had declared the Bridge Bad Boys the winner, but after discovering the error, the Fiske PTO sponsored team 'Ain't MisBeehivin' was given another opportunity to decide the winner. 'Ain't MisBeehivin' (who were down a team member), battled valiently, but The Bridge Bad Boys retained their title.
LexMedia broadcast the competition live on the local television channel.
A link to the event photos will be posted sometime this week.
