The team, made up of Erika Schlotfeldt, Jessie Robinson, Emily Glaser, and Courtney Lemon, beat teams from University of Missouri, University of Illinois, University of Washington, DePaul, Colorado State, and Wisconsin. The UP accounting team will now travel to New York at the end of February for the U.S. finals, where it will compete against other regional teams, including Howard University, Boston College, and University of Michigan.
