CF Brain Bowl Honors Lost Teammate
Oct. 30, 2013
The College of Central Florida hosted 24 brain bowl teams from 12 colleges Oct. 25-26 in the inaugural Erik Korray Open tournament. Orlando-based Valencia College A Team won the tournament, Chipola College A Team placed second and CF A Team placed third.
About 90 students participated in the tournament, which was named after former CF student and brain bowl team member Erik Korray who died in a November 2012 vehicle accident.
“We wanted to honor the memory of Erik and had an opportunity to host a tournament, so we thought this was the best idea,” said Darrell Riley, CF brain bowl co-coach and associate professor of Humanities and Social Sciences. “The plan is to make Erik Korray Open an annual event that brain bowl teams from around the state and the southeast will look forward to attending. It really started in a great way.”
Members of the CF A Team are Stetson Cooper, Mark Heltman and James Walegorski.
The CF Brain Bowl Team will next compete in the Delta Burke Invitational tournament at Valencia College’s West Campus in Orlando Nov. 8-9.
