It wasn’t all work though! Virag, Maja, Allen, and Sandra took some time off to enjoy a Louisville Bats baseball game!
Many thanks to Virag for her time spent as an expert advisor!
We’re so very proud of Sandra, Maja, and Allen, and the exceptional skill they demonstrated at this competition. It’s a major coup that these three all placed in this prestigious national event.
Congratulations to all!
