Liberty Blue past its competition in the final round of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) regional competition to capture first place in the 28 team tournament.
Jordan McLaughlin, team captain Louis Lolli and Jonathan Mills participated for the Liberty Blue team, and they went undefeated in the competition. The victories clinched a spot in the semi-final rounds for Liberty Blue. Teams must finish in the top four to advance in the competition. The other two teams that participated for Liberty finished the preliminary rounds in 5th and 6th place.
Liberty Blue faced Peace College in the semi-finals, which consists of two rounds. After the first round Liberty’s advantage was 3500 points, and they extended the lead to 5300 at the conclusion of the second round.
UNC Wilmington answered the first six questions correctly, taking a 2600-point lead. Liberty was able to capitalize on UNC Wilmington’s two wrong answers to spark a comeback. Liberty Blue secured the win, 4300-3500.
