The first PENNCREST Hi-Q was held in 1980, thirty-five years ago. On Wednesday April 29, the Saegertown Hi-Q team went head to head against Cambridge Springs and Maplewood in the annual contest, which consists of three fifteen-minute rounds of trivia.

After the first round, Maplewood was in first place with 55 points, followed by Cambridge Springs with 45 points, and Saegertown was in last place with 30 points. At the end of the competition, Saegertown took second place with 195 points, only 15 points behind Maplewood. Cambridge Springs took last place with 95 points. “I think we did well. We performed well. I hope next year we can close that 15 point gap. I’m looking forward to that friendly competition,” said Saegertown’s team captain, sophomore Sydney Kightlinger.

“We certainly made it interesting at the end. I am proud of the seniors, Eric Kisner and Brennen Burke. They have been wonderful competitors for several years, and they will be missed. This event is a grand tradition, and I hope the friendly rivalry continues for years to come,” said Hi-Q adviser Mrs. Stacey Hetrick.
