ANSI Quadrathalon Team Competes at Southern Section

Department of Animal Science Quadrathalon Team Competes at Southern Section

Over the weekend the Animal Science Quadrathalon team competed at the Southern Section competition. This year’s competition was hosted by Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. Teams participated in four events: Laboratory Practicum, Written Exam, Oral Presentation, and Quiz Bowl.

In the Laboratory Practicum, the team demonstrates its ability to perform physical skills. Work at each station lasts 15 to 20 minutes and involves the entire team. The work at each station usually involves a species such as beef or swine or a disciplinary area such as nutrition or meats.

The Written Exam has a 60 minute time limit. The questions may involve any area related to animal production and products. Each team works on one exam, dividing the questions as they wish.

In the Oral Presentation, the students may choose from a list of topics related to animal agriculture. They have 60 minutes to prepare the presentation.

In the Quiz Bowl, questions may be on any topic that relates to animal agriculture and that are answerable in a short period of time. Each round is made up of "toss up" questions. After a series of "toss up" questions, teams can earn the chance to get extra points on a "bonus" question. Toss up questions must be answered individually. For bonus question, individuals may confer with their team. Quiz games are organized as double elimination tournament.

Members of the 2018 team include Corban Hemphill of Yancey, TX, Brittany Lippy of Lineboro, MD, Wyatt Catron of Stillwell, OK, and Charlie Sasscer of Park Hall, MD.

The team was 1st in the written exam, 2nd in the live practicum, 4th in the quiz bowl and 5th in the presentation. They placed 3rd overall out of 11 teams from the southern United States.
