Seniors Defend their Title at Quiz Down 2017

It was a cold Thursday afternoon in Framingham, but inside the Marian auditorium, things were heating up. February 2nd would be a day to remember. For the first time in Marian High School history (not yet verified), the defending Quiz Down Champions would go on the offensive in a successful attempt at preserving their crown. The Senior Quiz Down team was made up of the dazzling Dorcas Abe, the classy Kevin Wang, the clever Christian Dardompre, and the jovial Januario Carreiro. The rumor going around is that Dorcas carried the team, and as a cheery member of the champion quartet, I must say that the rumor is most definitely true. The team that won the Quiz Down this year is not the same team that won it last year. While Kevin Wang and Dorcas Abe were on the winning team last year, they were also joined by Declan Walsh and Lillian Kurina. This year, Declan and Lillian were replaced by Christian and myself. For all of those who were unfortunately not able to attend Quiz Down 2017, the freshmen managed to score only four points in their loss to the sophomores, who themselves only scored six points. The seniors, on the other hand, scored 26 points in their final round, which proved victory over the sophomores. While the underclassmen may have a lot of room to grow when it comes to Quiz Down, their good attitude and sportsmanship shows that they are students that Marian is proud to have within her ranks. GO MARIAN!
