Including the 1976 Olympic Games, can you name the last 18 US boxers to win gold medals? Contestants in the Shehan Center’s 9th Annual Stump the Schwab had to answer this question along with many other challenging sports trivia questions asked by former ESPN’s trivia master, Howie Schwab.

The 9th Annual Stump the Schwab event was held at Vazzano's Four Seasons on Monday, October 2, 2018.  Congratulations to Matt Reale's team from the McGivney Center for once again winning first place!  A big thanks to Howie Schwab for emceeing our event!  We are looking forward to including more teams in the competition this year.  The 10th Annual Stump the Schwab event will be held on Oct 29, 2018.
