2012 Hi-Q - Menominee High School - First place in Regional Competition

03/29/12:  The team from Menominee High School turned in an impressive two match performance to win the 2012 Hi-Q championship.

  Menominee outscored runner-up Wausaukee 90 to 66 to win its second title in the 36 year history of the academic quiz competition. Gillett finished third with 37 points.

“I've always believed that hard work results in good things." said Menominee coach Ron Jackson, “so I really wasn't surprised that we had such a great year. I've never seen a group of students that worked as hard as these kids so I'm extremely happy that they get to realize that hard work really does result in good things."

  Menominee surged to a 19 point lead over Wausaukee with a 48 point performance in the first title match at Menominee March 28, and then locked up the championship scoring 42 more points in the final at Wausaukee the following day.

  Wausaukee, the defending regional and national champion, scored 29 and 37 points in the two championship matches to finish with 66 points. Gillett started slowly with 9 points in the opening match and then added 28 in the second to finish with 37.

  Menominee earned its berth in the championship match by talking first in three rounds of regular season competition by scoring 168 points.

  For winning the championship, Wausaukee will be presented with a $2,000 check for the school at the Hi-Q banquet honoring the top three teams next month. Wausaukee will receive a $1,500 check and Gillett $1,000.

  Menominee now advances to compete in the national championship Hi-Q match April 23. Menominee will compete via video conference in the library building at UW Marinette.

This season 18 high schools in Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula competed in Hi-Q.

 Questions are drawn from 14 subjects and based primarily on the content of standard high school courses and general scholastic knowledge that students can be expected to have acquired at school or elsewhere.

  Hi-Q is sponsored by Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust, Kimberly-Clark Corp., and the University of Wisconsin-Marinette.
