Kats took first place in the Employment Interview contest. Levi Zins placed 4th in the same contest.
Other results included a fifth place finish for the Beef Specialist team. Zins individually placed 15th, Christina Stainbrook 21st, and Bryce Klostergaard 22nd.
The MTI Quiz Bowl team was ousted after two rounds, losing to the eventual champion, Parkland College of Illinois.
