correctly answering the final question in the
2014 Madison Cup and securing the championship.
One of the many remarkable moments during the competition happened when a judge requested Team Number One - Banquero and Erickson - to expand on a question asking what the goals of the Constitution are. In unison, the teammates recited the Preamble to the United States Constitution. (They repeated the performance again after the competition – watch it on YouTube.)
First-place winners German Baquero and Sam Erickson each received a copy of The Heritage Guide to the Constitution and an engraved mug. The second-place finishers, Hans and Karl Rodvick, each received a copy of the Constitution and a gift certificate to the UAA Campus Bookstore.
