UW-Eau Claire Abby Yurish and Liz Verkuilen both qualified for the second round of the role play—only nine teams placed both students in Round Two. Yurish and Verkuilen also participated in the speed selling competition. Despite lots of hard work and special coaching by team members Joey Schreiner and Jared Sweeney, the UW-Eau Claire competitors did not finish in the top four.
This is the last competition for the Blugold Sales Team for the semester. Their next competition is the University of Toledo Invitational Sales Competition, which will be held Feb. 25-27. View here for more information.
