Some Alderson-Broaddus College students will take their athletic training know-how to Vegas next month.

A team of three students from A-B beat schools like WVU and the University of South Carolina last week in the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Trainer's Association Quiz Bowl.

The win qualifies the team to be one of ten at the national contest in June, something the first-time entrants say they're looking forward to.

"Students can put it on their resume, so you can go into a job interview saying 'I competed in this as a student, I'm one of the top thirty athletic training students in the nation,' essentially, so it can be very valuable in the athletic training field," said team member Jacob Hill, who graduated from A-B this month.

The Student Government Association at A-B has also played a big role in supporting the team. They've spent more than $4,000 to help send the team to the regional and national competitions.
