Nine Delco Hi-Q teams competed for the third and final time in the Hi-Q regular season.


On February 5th, Cardinal O’Hara hosted Chichester and Sun Valley High Schools. Sun Valley took an early lead, however Chichester quickly picked up points to have a dominating lead in the first half- almost doubling the other teams’ scores. During the second half O’Hara was able to close in on the gap, but not enough for the win. Final Scores- Cardinal O’Hara: 30; Chichester: 49; Sun Valley: 23


Interboro High School and Valley Forge Military Academy traveled to Chester STEM for the contest on February 7. Lead changes and a tie marked the first half, but Interboro ultimately clinched the win, aided by 6 bonus points. State Representative Carol Kazeem graced the event. Final Scores- Chester STEM: 21; Interboro: 31; VMFA: 26


The week’s final clash occurred on February 9th at Garnet Valley High School, with visitors Haverford and Radnor High Schools. With a packed audience adding to the excitement, all three teams vied for playoff spots. Radnor led at halftime, but the outcome hinged on the final Math question. Haverford emerged victorious by a narrow margin, though all teams notched impressive scores. Representative Williams attended and congratulated the participants post-competition. Final Scores- Garnet Valley: 43; Haverford: 45; Radnor: 41.


Only two contests remain in the final round and each will determine playoff positions. Marple Newtown hosts Penncrest and Delaware County Christian School on Thursday and Penn Wood hosts Archbishop Carroll and Springfield on February 21 in a weather delayed rescheduled contest.
