SWOSU to Play for Mind Games Championship Title this Sunday
Southwestern Oklahoma State University will play for the Mind Games “grand championship” this Sunday, May 25, in Oklahoma City.
SWOSU, which won the four-year university Mind Games academic competition during the past fall semester, will play Tulsa Community College, the winner of the two-year university competition that took place this spring.
SWOSU and TCC will meet to decide the overall winner of the 2013-14 competition at 6:30 p.m. on KSBI-TV in Oklahoma City.
Members of the SWOSU “White” team are: Zeke Mills, Springfield (MO); Jessi Goetzinger, Edmond; and Keegan Coon, Davenport.
SWOSU is the defending champs of Mind Games. SWOSU has fared well in the Mind Games competition since it began in 2011. SWOSU won the 2012-13 grand championship title, and SWOSU won the 2013 and 2012 spring semester and 2013 fall semester titles as well as finishing runnerup during the 2012 fall semester.
SWOSU had two teams in the competition this year, and the “Blue” team advanced to the semifinals before losing to the SWOSU “White” team. The two teams combined to win $4,845 in scholarship money based on their outstanding performances, according to Coach Dr. Fred Gates, professor of history.
