The team (shown from left, Austin Montevecchio, Andrew Buzzelli, Ariana Gloeckner, Jason Pettner, and Richard Kelly) spent more than 130 hours preparing a financial report and one-year stock valuation for the competition, held in Pittsburgh in March. The team advanced to the Americas Regional Competition in Seattle in April.
