3 Questions!!! (1/26/04)

Hi all! Here are today's 3 Questions...

1. Who was the first team to win more than one national championship?

2. Who was the first president to invite a winning FIRST team to the White House?

3. Who was the only team with the ability to score all 9 tubes in 1997. (Hint: They did it during practice rounds in NJ)

Re: 3 Questions!!! (1/26/04)

1. 71, Beatty & Hammond, 1997, 2001, 2002

2. George Bush

3. There were many teams that had the ability, some in the time limit and some not. I'm going to guess Nypro & Clinton (126) is the team that you are referring to.

Having studied just about every team in 97 with Gael Force Strategy, I truely dont believe there were any teams other than the team I am thinking of who could do it, and who actually did do it in practice rounds. (part of the reason I gave the hint) I would love to know any other teams who did, so let me know!

Re: 3 Questions!!! (1/26/04)

Today's Answers...

1. Beatty and Hammond High School (Team 71)

2. George H.W. Bush

3. As you can see from the picture, team 63 (now 88) TJē had the ability to hold 9 above the apex of the goal, and did so during the practice rounds of the NJ Regional.

Today's winner is Karthik! Good Job!

Re: 3 Questions!!! (1/26/04)

Correction...

Answer #1 is Beatty and Hammond high schools, #71... as a graduate of one of the other three schools (out of four), I felt the need to stick up for myself.
