Strath Haven 2015-2016 Hi-Q Team
Friday’s contest began on a patriotic note with a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem by the Strath Haven Silvertones. Dr. Harry Jamison, FMFCU Board member, opened the assembly by thanking the enthusiastic audience and team members. The Lions could not overcome the Panthers in this contest. Home team Strath Haven took the lead early and held it, besting Cardinal O’Hara with correct answers to all but one regular question, and showing particular strength in Geography, where they earned maximum points, picked up a bonus point, and successfully scored four points in the team choice category. O’Hara also snagged four points for their team choice subject, which was Shakespeare. The Lions were quick on the draw to correctly answer the toss up math question but the Hail Mary effort was not enough to propel them to victory. Among the spectators were Steven Buxton and Christina Henderson Sotherden, members of the Wilbur C. and Betty Lea Henderson Foundation board, which is one of Delco Hi-Q’s major funders. An exhibition team comprised of Cardinal O’Hara and Strath Haven comprised the third team due to the absence of Chester High School. Final scores: Strath Haven 49; Cardinal O’Hara 21
Coincidentally, two meets are scheduled next week and both will be held on the Main Line. Archbishop Carroll hosts Delco Christian and Bonner & Prendie Wednesday. Radnor High hosts Garnet Valley and Ridley Thursday.
