Academic Excellence Challenge team does well at competition in Chanute
Going head-to-head with students from Neosho County, Cloud County, and
Coffeyville Community College, the Cowley College Academic Excellence
Challenge team had some strong performances at its competition held
Saturday in Chanute.
Cowley’s AEC team had a number of individuals who scored at the highest levels in the competition. Marcus Whitson and Aaron Brooks shined at the event as they answered an average of 6 to 7 toss-up questions per round.
The team also had solid performances from Peter Onelio, Tyler Robbins and Jesse Filburn, who were each first time participants. Also providing a strong performance was Stefny Cabrera, who is a returning team member.
AEC team sponsor, Greg Nichols, is looking forward to working with this group of students throughout the school year.
“They love to compete with each other and that makes them even better at the competitions,” Nichols said.
