Unprecedented Fifth Straight Victory
Perkins High School won Thursday's final Firelands Challenge Championship Match in front of an enthusiastic home crowd, but Edison High School was the overall champion based on cumulative points. The third Championship Match proved to be as exciting as the first two with Perkins jumping out to an early lead and winning an appeal of a mathematics answer to finish the match with 50 points. Edison ended with 46 points and St. Paul with 39 points.
However the Championship is based upon the total cumulative points earned in all three finals matches. With the final match completed, St. Paul finished in third place with 109 points, Perkins finished in second place with 152 points, and Edison took the winner's plaque with 155 points. It also earned congratulatory applause from the students at Perkins.
This season saw Edison earn its fifth straight Firelands Challenge Championship. In the 36 years that the Firelands Challenge Program has been sponsoring these contests, this is the first time a high school has earned five consecutive championships.
