Student and Staff Kudos

Congratulations to the Brain Bowl Team!

The CF Red team finished tied for 4th place in the National Academic Quiz Tournament South Florida Sectionals Saturday, Jan. 21, hosted by the State College of Florida–Manatee, Sarasota. The team members participating included Shawn Jarrard, Levi Cooper, Andrew Weatherly, Chris Shelton, and Shazeem Sadeek.

According to preliminary results, CF is now ranked 12th in the nation (out of 61 teams participating in sectionals around the country). This means the team should qualify to advance to the NAQT Community College Championship Tournament to be held Feb. 24-25, in Bloomington, Minn.

The team will next participate in the FCSAA East Central Regional to be hosted by CF at the Ocala Campus on Saturday, Feb. 11. If they finish in the top two at this tournament they will advance to the FCSAA State Brain Bowl Tournament to be held from March 30-April 1 at Florida Gulf Coast College in Panama City.

Congratulations, Jennifer Klepfer. In an email to the college, Vice President of Administration and Finance Joe Mazur, wrote:
