During the practice contest at Texas A&M University, a special event was held to honor Dr. Krueger, the W.F. Krueger Memorial Invitational Poultry Contest.

The Poultry Team placed fourth with members Kyle Brown, fifth place; Bethany Mihalec, Evan Pieniazek, Jared Pieniazek, Emeleigh Geistweidt, and Stephenie Geistweidt.

At the Sam Houston State University competition, the Ag Sales Team placed sixth with team members Alexis Wagner, Heather Kosub, ninth place; and Shelbie Thames, fourth place.

All of these teams will be competing at the various Area and State contests in the coming weeks.
