Warhill High School English and creative writing teacher Nicole Throckmorton advanced into the Teachers Tournament’s semifinal round on the syndicated, pre-recorded game show “Jeopardy!”
She took second place among three players in one of the first-round games, which aired throughout the week (Throckmorton’s was shown Tuesday).
The five winners advanced to next week’s shows, as did the four highest-scoring non-winners. With $5,000, Throckmorton placed fourth among the week’s 10 non-winners to become a wild-card semifinalist.
Throckmorton, 42, said her semifinal will be shown Monday, with WVEC in Hampton Roads and WRIC in Richmond carrying it at 7:30 p.m.
