Prefect Council kicks off March Madness challenge

Competition in the Prefect Council-sponsored March Madness bracket challenge began yesterday.

The challenge, open to students and teachers, goes through the NCAA championship game on April 8, at which point the participant whose bracket correctly predicted the most games will be declared the winner and receive a prize. According to Prefect Council, 118 people submitted brackets to the challenge on Yahoo.

After the first day, no bracket was perfect.

To accompany the competition, the Slammin’ Sliders food truck sold its signature sliders in the quad from 12 to 3 p.m.

Though a Wednesday email advertised live showings of March Madness games all day in Rugby Auditorium, an organizational error prevented the screening of any of the college basketball games. Games will be shown in Rugby today, however.
