Last week, Harker’s Team Hurrikeynes – made up of seniors Aaron Huang, Rohith Kuditipudi (not pictured), Ashwath Thirumalai, Steven Wang and Leo Yu and advised by economics teachers Sam Lepler and Damon Halback – qualified for the national semifinal round of the National Economics Challenge. The April 7 competition, which took place at the San Francisco Federal Reserve, consisted of a testing round in which five participating teams (three of which were from Harker) closely matched. Team Hurrikenes’ runaway success in the quiz bowl round was the deciding factor in their victory. Next week’s semifinal exam will determine if Team Hurrikeynes travels to New York City for the televised national finals. Wish them luck!
