While our student group did not get first place this year in the annual Turf Bowl, they still did pretty well.  They placed 5th and received a large check that we will proudly display by the trophy case.  This year's contest included 68 teams from 35 schools.   A total of 247 students participated.  It took place on February 7 in San Diego California.

We will have several students back next year that took the test this year and we are already developing a strategy to prepare for next year's contest.  We would really like to get that traveling trophy back next year in Orlando.

The team included Spencer Nelson, Evan Alderman, Casey Sheehy, Andrew Doyle.  (Spencer is just to the left of the check.)
