The Tail End of Tiger Trivia Hour

Tiger Trivia World Cup Final Results
We are pleased to announce that the winner of the first Tiger Trivia World Cup is....(drumroll) Luke Stone from the Class of 2020! All ten of the contestants earned their way to the final and played well before a zoom audience of alumni and parents, including at least one classmate of each of the contestants. The final was, as expected, a high-level, dramatic, and hard-fought contest. Here is a screenshot of the contestants.

Congratulations to Luke, who qualified for the final by winning the Florida competition and placing fifth in his semifinal. For his victory, Luke won three prizes of his choice. William Harris ’80 P’17 ’19, who qualified for the final by winning the Charlotte contest and winning his semifinal, finished a strong second and won two new prizes of his choice. John Gillespie ’85 P’14, the Western U.S. champion, finished in third, winning one prize of his choice. Jason Slade ’90, the Triangle champion, finished fourth, and Broderick Dunn ’00, the Capital champion and winner of his semifinal round, finished fifth.

Congratulations also to Scott Gillespie ’91 P’23, John Gillespie ’85 P’14, Broderick Dunn ’00, and Jason Slade ’90 for winning the Paul Huber Special Prizes. The stakes were higher for the Huber Specials in the Finals. Instead of Moubrays or Roadkill, Scott took home a Caroline’s Cakes Southern layer cake, courtesy of Richard Reutter ’00. His brother, John, took home a cast iron skillet from Smithey Ironware Company, courtesy of Isaac Morton ’94. Broderick won a gift box of Hubs Peanuts, courtesy of his classmate, Marshall Rabil ’00. Lastly, Jason won a thoughtfully crafted item for the heart and home from Crafted Glory Design, courtesy of Kwadwo Som-Pimpong ’07.

The championship brings an end to our first-ever Tiger Trivia season with 25 regional Tiger Trivia contests, followed by two semifinal rounds and the final. Thanks and congratulations go to all of our contestants who participated in this wonderful event. It was a success on so many levels, but it would not have been so without the wonderful cast of alumni, parents, and friends of Woodberry who took the opportunity to come together and have some fun, no matter the circumstances. An additional thanks goes out to all of our alumni and parents who sponsored the amazing prizes for the Tiger Trivia Hour. It brings us great pleasure to spotlight their companies and promote the success of their hard work, and they have been the biggest help in their willingness to be a part of the Tiger Trivia Hour from the start. We encourage all of you to review and consider supporting these alumni and parent businesses. 

We rode this event right into OneWoodberry, which was also a monumental success. It’s been a challenging year for all, but we will be sure to look back on this time fondly as it brought us the  Tiger Trivia Hour, which helped us to learn about our school and take pride in it, have some fun while doing so, and come together through the bonds of Woodberry. So thank you to everyone again, and we look forward to seeing you at more Woodberry events very soon!
