Six ULM teams faced two Arkansas teams on April 28, before the end of the 2021 spring semester.

Jessica Lassiter, Associate Professor and Director of the MLS Program, said, “The annual Student Bowl Competition is engaging and stimulating for graduate students. In this competition, MLS graduate students prove their MLS proficiency by answering knowledge-based questions at a fast and intense pace. MLS students trained weekly for this competition in hopes of winning the competition and ultimately passing their national certification exam. The MLS Faculty is proud of all of our MLS students. The winning student team was amazing. Without the help of their classmates, teachers and alumni, this competition would not have been possible. ”

After several hours of double elimination competition, two ULM teams are competing for the championship.

In the final round, the undefeated No.1 Team, featuring Captain Connor Roan, Bailey Mercer, Molly Mobley, William Pearson and Peyton Roussell, faced off against Team No.6, with Captain Chance Foret, Caleb Boyte, Alexa Garlington, Bennie Kirkikis, Shannon Johnson, Nathan Parks, Chloe Paul and Cidney Whitman.

Team # 6 upset Team # 1, 40-25, which resulted in another final round of play. In the end, Team # 1 took the win by 10 points.

Rosalie Hendrix and Juliana Kemege, both ULM MLS alumni who work at St. Francis Medical Center, served as judges and moderators for the student bowl.

MLS faculty members Lassiter Emilea Haddox and Debbie Wisenor planned the competition for several months to help prepare MLS graduate students for the Certification Board exam administered by the American Society for Clinical Pathology.

MLS is part of the School of Allied Health at the College of Health Sciences. For more information on the MLS program, visit ulm.edu/mls.
