The 72nd Season of Delco Hi-Q resumed with second round competition as Chichester High School hosted the first match of 2020 on January 3rd. The audience members heard opening comments from Ken Eberle from Kimberly Clark Chester Operations, a major sponsor of Delco Hi-Q. With their home audience cheering them on, Chichester swiftly accumulated points in the first round, however they couldn’t keep up with Radnor who answered all of their questions correctly and were quick with the buzzer. In the second half, all three teams were stumped for their Team Choice questions. Radnor remained in the lead and buzzed in just 4 seconds to answer the final Math question correctly. Final Score: Chichester: 30, Academy Park: 2, Radnor: 57.
