Jones Wins Battle of the Halls

The ladies of Jones Hall won the Battle of the Halls competition last week, and results for each individual competition have been announced.

After the final tally, the hall garnering the second highest total of points was Roush Hall, followed by Critz-Hughes Complex in third place.

The halls competed in Wacky Olympics, a kickball tournament and hall beautification. On Big Splash night, there were contests for smallest splash, biggest splash, craziest dive and water volleyball.

Additionally, average hall GPA was a factor in the final score, and the halls received points for raising money for March of Dimes.

During the closing ceremonies, the halls had a final chance to collect points in the quiz bowl game.

Marty Sabolo was the master of ceremonies for quiz bowl. He asked questions in areas of theatre, pop culture, Harry Potter, literature, geography, spelling, history and the infamous final category, Arkansas Tech knowledge.

The final question was, “Dr. Kenneth Kersch, the 10th Arkansas Tech University president, passed away. In what month and year did he assume his position at Arkansas Tech?” The correct answer was January of 1973. There were no right answers, but many answers were close, guessing in the early 1970s.
