Successful Trivia Night VI & Academic Games Reunion

Crispito II: Electric Boogaloo

Crispito II: Electric Boogaloo

Do you have what it takes to be a trivia connoisseur?

On Thursday, December 28, Brother Martin held their ever-popular Trivia Night and Academic Games Reunion which continued the battle of who is smarter than a Crusader. Questions, such as Who was the first principal of Brother Martin High School? or Who led troops in the Battle of the Bulge? or any type of trivia question, proved challenging to the 20 teams.

James Maumus ’89, Jeff Maumus ’97, and Miguel Sanchez ’00 of Challenge Entertainment and Live Trivia returned to campus to host this widely-popular event.  During the night, the Maumus brothers used their microphone on stage to quiz Crusader alumni, parents, family, and friends to six rounds of trivia questions ranging from Brother Martin history, sports, geography, and entertainment. In addition, helpful clues were given to participants in various ways which made this event a great night and added a little friendly competition for all.

Also, members of the Academic Games alumni group, which included Joel Maumus ’92, Jeff Magill ’90, Brian Giandelone ’02, Brother Neal Golden ’57 CJ, Jon Frosch ’03, Craig Zeller ’02, James Maumus ’89, Jeff Maumus ’97, and Will Monson ’03, gathered together to reminisce about their days as members of Academic Games in school and to take a group photo at the end of the night.

Academic Games at Brother Martin has a rich tradition and continues to be a popular extracurricular club for many current students, as well. Former member of the Academic Games team Brian Giandelone ’02 commented that “it’s great to come back to my alma mater, reconnect with my classmates and enjoy a night of trivia with old and new friends.”

It was also a great night for some lucky winners, such as “Crispito II: Electric Boogaloo” (Jacob Mayer ’03, Lindsey Prevost Mayer, Jon Frosch ’03, William Monson ’03, and Bradley Rosenberg),  who were crowned overall champions along with “Team Thomas” (Josh Thomas ’97, Angie Thomas, Billy Rieger ’95, Sarah Rieger, Nick Castjohn ’95, and Cheryl Castjohn) who finished as overall runners-up. The “Golden’s Crusaders” (Bro. Neal Golden ’57 CJ, Dr. Stephen Tucker, Richard Dempsey ’70, Bruce Bivona ’70, and Sean Brunet ’86) knew their Brother Martin trivia as they secured a win for the Brother Martin portion of the event. In addition, Jeremy Pelegrin ’94 of “The Village Idiots” was the lucky winner of the 50/50 raffle. Dr. Stephen Tucker summed up the night by stating that “at Brother Martin Trivia nights, nostalgia is everything it used to be and almost as much fun as my former history classes.”

Thank you to our Food Services, Brainiacs, Alumni and to Greg Ansley ’83 for also sponsoring the trivia night.
