March 25th, 2005

A team of students from the College of Agriculture placed first in the Academic Quadrathlon held in conjunction with the Midwest Section joint meetings of the American Society of Animal Science and the American Dairy Science Association.

The scholastic competition took place in Des Moines earlier this week. The team competed against 16 teams from across the Midwest in four areas: laboratory practicum, written examination, oral presentation and a quiz bowl. The Iowa State team placed first in the quiz bowl, first in lab practicum, first in oral presentation, third in the written examination and first overall.

Team members include Jennifer Taylor, a senior in dairy science from Hebron, Conn.; Conrad Spangler, a senior in dairy science from Hillsboro; Dusty Loy, a senior in animal science from Ames; and Pat Hoffman, a senior in animal science from Walnut.
