2018 2nd Annual Team Competition and Qualifying Round Results
Cumberland Valley Team
Congratulations to Cumberland Valley High School “Turtle Recall” for being 2018 Team Champions!
The day proved to be quite competitive with defending Team Champions Hershey High School dominating the qualifying rounds by winning First Place in each of the four events.
Cumberland Valley prevailed by winning the afternoon, rising to the challenge and dominating the final event, Double Deck or Bust!
The Names & Faces US record was broken by its holder, Nelson Dellis, then immediately rebroken by a Hershey Middle School newcomer, Xuanxi Yang!
We had our first septuagenarian competitor as Dr. Marie Kaye demonstrated that memory, like age, is a state of mind!
The afternoon included a presentation on memory by Dr. Robert Ajemian, neuroscientist and researcher at MIT’s McGovern Brain Institute.
Chester Santos, the International Man of Memory and sponsor of this year’s event, was also a guest speaker on the topic of memory.
Thank you to everyone who participated – competitors, volunteers, organizers, spectators. You made this a memorable event!
