In an unbelievable finish at the Opening Round Championship Series held in White Plains, New York, Columbia Team 515 qualified for Nationals. The only team to end the weekend with a perfect record of 8 ballots, 515 is the White Plains ORCS champions for the 2011-2012 season. This impressive finish means that Columbia 515 is headed to the National Championship Tournament (NCT) having not lost a single ballot in the post-season.
Along with their perfect finish, the team boasts an additional honor: Alex Valdez received an Outstanding Witness award for her portrayal of Officer Foster. Congratulations to Alex and all members of the program on a job well done! Columbia is thrilled to be headed back to the NCT and will be competing in Minneapolis the weekend of April 13th.
