Castilleja Fights ‘Til the End!

handshake

Castilleja and Carlmont team captains shake hands after the competition.

Castilleja took 2nd place at the 46th annual Millard Fillmore Trivia Hunt on Monday night. After working hard from Friday afternoon to Sunday to research and document answers to 90 obscure trivia questions, our team did a great job defending their answers and critiquing the other teams’ documentation. It was a close race throughout the night, with Castilleja and Carlmont neck and neck. Casti students gave perfect “command performances,” reciting the Gettysburg Address, listing all the US presidents in reverse chronological order, and winning the Sudoku challenge with 17 seconds to spare. Team co-captain Hannah K. ‘15 said, “We were really impressed with Carlmont. Their competition will make us even better next year!” For this year the trophy has returned to the school where the FOMF competition originated, but Castilleja is already planning their strategy to come back strong in next year’s Hunt! Thanks to everyone who helped out.
