NDSU Animal Sciences students win honors at Academic Quadrathlon

Four North Dakota State University (NDSU) Animal Sciences students brought home honors from the Academic Quadrathlon portion of the Midwest American Society of Animal Science/American Dairy Science Association annual meeting in Des Moines, IA.

The NDSU team took first place in the Academic Quadrathlon’s oral presentation and written exam competitions. The other two events that make up the Quadrathlon are lab practicum and Quiz Bowl. The NDSU team placed second overall.

Team members are Nathan Hayes, Big Lake, MN; Beth Hendrickx, Bowman, ND; Quynn Larson, Brandon, SD; and Phil Steichen, Ulen, MN.

The regional competition was held at Iowa State University and the Polk County Convention Center in Des Moines on March 13-14.

Teams compete at the local level to advance to the regional competition. The competition tests students on the knowledge they gain from their classes.

“Placing in this competition highlights the Animal Sciences Department’s success in training its students to have a well-rounded animal science education,” said Kasey Carlin, the NDSU team’s adviser.

NDSU’s team competed against teams of animal science students from 14 other colleges and universities in the Midwest region.

“We are proud of these students and their accomplishments,” said Greg Lardy, Animal Sciences Department head. “It highlights just how competitive NDSU and the Animal Sciences Department are in the Midwest region. It shows the strength of our program and the great faculty we have.”
