Clements successfully answered the tweet question from @phillylacrosse: How many championships have the Philadelphia Wings won in the National Lacrosse League and in what years?
The Wings won all of their NLL titles from 1989 to 2001 – claiming the crown in 1989, ’90, ’94, ’95, ’98 and 2001.
The bonus question was, “What current Philly HS assistant coach was the team’s coach for half of the titles. The answer was supplied by Clements – Tony Resch, currently assistant and AD at Catholic League power La Salle. Resch, also a Wings perennial All-Star, was voted into the NLL Hall of Fame in 2008.
Clements (@da_pipelayer) had the winning answer in less than 2 minutes, and was followed by four others who had it just seconds later.
Clements, who gets a Dick’s $50 coupon, answered correctly in less than 2 minutes! But others were not far behind.

Second was Kennett/NXT L.C. SOPH ATT-MF Brady O’Neill (@bradyoneill17).
Third was two-time past winner and six-time medalist Tyson Hugee (followtyson), a Wissahickon a freshman midfielder.
Fourth was Harriton JR DEF Brendan Wickline (@Wicki_Pedia).
