RNSC is an event to provide collegiate sales teams an opportunity to prepare and compete in a competitive setting before the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC). Eighteen universities from around the country participated in the two-day event.

Both Folsom and Zaine advanced to the third round of the competition helping to earn a third-place finish for the sales team.
