SWOSU Mind Games Team Plays Quarterfinal this Sunday, April 14


Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s “Mind Games” team will play its quarterfinal match of the 2013 spring semester tourney against East Central University this Sunday evening, April 14, at 6 p.m. on KSBI-TV.  

SWOSU and ECU will battle to see which team advances to the semifinals of the Oklahoma academic challenge competition, a buzzer quiz game based on knowledge in all academic fields. Sixteen Oklahoma colleges and universities are competing this spring, and students are competing for scholarship money.

SWOSU won $10,750 in scholarship money during the fall semester tourney when it finished champion runnerup. SWOSU did win the 2012 spring semester championship title.

Members of the SWOSU team are: Zeke Mills, Springfield MO; Connor Holland, Duncan; Mackenzie Bergagnini, Ponca City; Will Robinson, Canton; and Keegan Coon of Davenport. Coach of the SWOSU team is Dr. Fred Gates, who is associate professor of history in the Department of Social Sciences.

If SWOSU wins the quarterfinal match, the team will play in the semifinals on May 12.
