Congratulations to Skyline college for winning annual Greater Bay Area Region (GBAR) Sputum Bowl Preliminaries.
Skyline College has proven its academic prowess by sending eight representatives in two teams to the annual GBAR- California Society of Respiratory Care Sputum Bowl Preliminaries. The victor (Skyline College) of the preliminaries will represent the Bay Area at the statewide respiratory conference in Long Beach for a chance to win California on a national level at the CSRC annual conference.
This competition was conducted in a fashion much like the gameshow, Jeopardy. A total of 8 teams competed in a preliminary round robin competition to determine seeding and then compete in bracketed elimination rounds. Two Skyline College teams (Spit-tacular and Spit Happens) entered this competition. Skyline made it to the finals as “Spit Happens” faced off with San Joaquin Valley College’s team “Valley Fever” in an epic 12 minute battle of wits. Cheered on by faculty and students, “Spit Happens” emerged victorious and earned the right to represent the Bay area in Long Beach in May.
Let’s wish them best of luck for State competition.
