Twelve of the fifteen teams elected to participate in the playoffs for the 2007 Fall Freshman Quiz League, which took place at Old Union on Saturday, November 10. Congratulations to 4th-seeded Exodus, who defeated 3rd-seeded West Lag Nicey Spacho in the finals, 320-185. Exodus, led by Bill Rowan and rounded out by Steven Wu and Chris Chen, defeated 9th-seeded Leviticus in the semifinals. (Exodus's fourth player, Justin Stoncius, was unfortunately sick and could not participate.) Leviticus, in turn, had upset 1st-seeded Paloma to earn a spot in the semifinals.
