The 6th annual Student/Faculty Jeopardy game was one for the record books. The lead changed hands after almost every question, with 1Ls dominating Jeopardy, and the Faculty team coming on strong in Double Jeopardy, but a strong finish—and some bold playing—led to a victory by the 3Ls, marking just the second time that students have topped their elders. Here is a recap from 3L Captain Ed Stravato:
This win was 3 years in the making, and truly a full team effort. We came close to winning the past 2 years, but we played way too conservatively. This being our last chance to beat the faculty, we decided to play aggressively and it paid off. We hit two daily doubles, and bet all of our money both times. On the second daily double, we had $6,000 in our account and we took a big risk but got it correct. (The category was “Rock Names” and the question was “How golf is scored.” The answer: “Strokes”). Nailing that one put us in the lead, and we never looked back.
The victorious team was made up of Jenna Hashway (Pawtucket, RI), Dan Hirseman (Poughkeepsie, NY), Andrew McElroy (Roswell, GA), Kelly Rafferty ( Kennebunk, ME), Ed Stravato (Johnston, RI ), and Susie Thomas (Lake Buff, IL).
Kudos to the Sports and Entertainment Law Society (SPENT) for organizing and James Brown for great tech support.
