Bioethics Bowl Team makes it to Elite Eight
The University’s four-member Bioethics Bowl team made it to the Elite Eight in the National Undergraduate Bioethics Bowl at Tallahassee, Fla., earlier this month.
Members Ashley Van Order, Mikayla Keating, William Kennedy and Jacob Moore won five of the nine debates in which they competed and placed eighth overall in the competition hosted by Florida State University. Dr. Ian Young, philosophy, who coaches the team along with Dr. Christian Coons, accompanied the team to the competition.
In the first round, BGSU’s team defeated teams from the University of Miami and Loyola University Chicago and narrowly lost to Dartmouth College. In the quarterfinal round, the team lost to the University of Denver, the team that placed third overall.
