Walnut Hills Wins ONN's Brain Game

Walnut Hills High School won the state championship last night on the Ohio News Network's "Brain Game" quiz show over Shawnee High School.

The Cincinnati team advanced to the finals because it scored the most points (455) of the 60 schools in the competition. The Walnut Hills students won $10,000 for the school.

The show was taped in Columbus on Feb. 23, the day after Walnut Hills sophomore won the $75,000 "Jeopardy!" teen tournament. Horn, 15, was an alternate for the four-person team.

Scott Grunder, Walnut Hills quiz team coach and Horn's history teacher, told me in February: "Imagine the look on the other team's faces when they see the 'Jeopardy!' girl is on the bench."

A video is posted at the ONN site, but I haven't had luck opening it.
