District 8's newest national champions

Congratulations to Peter Yeh, Yewen Fan, Ziyang Liu and Brad Sevcik, winners of the 2016 Collegiate Bridge Bowl. They represented the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Seventeen college teams entered the qualifying rounds on Bridgebase Online. The UI team was one of four that advanced to the national finals, held at the Washington DC national tournament on July 23 & 24.

The Fighting Illini team beat the University of Chicago in the semifinals and UC-Berkeley in the finals. Northwestern University, which placed third, was the other team in the final four.

In addition to the trophies, the winners received a total of $20,000 in scholarships. Well done
