20-14 Scholastic Games-“Best of” 2000 Championship

BACK TO 2000: Elyria High Sets 20-Year Win Record

Back in 2000, Elyria High School set a record when it won five championships over the ten years the program had been broadcast. In the twenty years since then the record still stands, having been matched only once by Olmsted Falls High School, which won its fifth in 2018. In this, the 30th year of our competitions, we rebroadcast for the first time that fifth championship by Elyria in 2000. Though many of the academic questions might still be asked of high schoolers today, it may be of particular interest to hear round two, the “Current Events Round,” which actually begins with what was then a historic milestone. By the way, the competing team is from Amherst Marion L. Steele High, which had reached the championship for a third consecutive year, but sadly came in second all three times (to eventually win top honors in 2015). Over the years, 12 different high schools have won the Scholastic Games championship.
