An Ohio sports team figured in play along the way when Schneider correctly answered: The coach of this Columbus MLS team hopes they don’t mutiny with the Crew.

Schneider’s win featured a big Final Jeopardy! payout. She correctly answered: “In the morning of April 15, 1912, Officer Charles Lightoller became the last of about 700 people to board this ship” with the Carpathia.

The Chaminade-Julienne graduate’s $15,000 wager brought her Wednesday total to $37,400.
