BALTIMORE – College of Education athletic training students have won the quiz bowl national championship at the National Athletic Trainers’ Association yearly conference.

Ten teams competed after winning in their respective districts. The Washington State University team’s district comprises Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.

Last year the team won the district competition but finished second at nationals. WSU athletic training program director Kasee Hildenbrand said the team members – Ricky Ayala, Alee Bryan, Elias Whitefoot and alternate Jessie Dizenfeld – have been preparing ever since.

“They were very excited to win, and there was a very loud rendition of the fight song once the team knew it had won,” she said. “For the moment, the team members can say they are the best students in the nation. They represented WSU well, and WSU is proud of them.”
