North Quincy High proceeds to Quiz Show state championship

North Quincy is one of the top two Massachusetts public high schools on High School Quiz Show, as its academic team will face off against Lexington High School to compete for the state championship Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on WGBH 2. The winner will move on to the inaugural Governor’s Cup Challenge against New Hampshire Public Television’s Granite State Challenge championship winner. Lexington High School advanced to the state championship after defeating Rockport High School in the semifinals, and North Quincy High School outscored Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in the semifinal round. Leading up to Sunday’s state championship, WGBH 2 will re-air High School Quiz Show’s quarterfinal and semifinal episodes back-to-back that day, 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. “An exciting battle of the brains is coming to an end. This year’s competition has celebrated academic success and good sportsmanship, and the championship match is sure to continue that tradition,” said Hillary Wells, executive producer of High School Quiz Show. “Congratulations to all the students, coaches, and parents who have made this the most exciting season yet, and good luck to the students from Lexington and North Quincy in the final showdown.”
