Rutgers-Newark Achievements Update

by Ken Houghton

It was a good week last week for Rutgers-Newark, which won the Fed Challenge for the NY district and will be competing in the finals in Washington, D.C., next Tuesday (28 Nov).

The Newark team defeated defending champions SUNY-Geneseo. Coming in third in the NY region was Rutgers-New Brunswick.

Strangely, we have not yet received any e-mails about this accomplishment from President McCormick, though there is at least this on the main website:
The nation is noticing the newfound success of the Rutgers football team, which is ranked in the top 10 for the first time in school history. But Rutgers football is hardly the first of the university’s programs to earn national and worldwide distinction. Academic programs from history to practical mathematics at The State University of New Jersey have long been outstanding in their fields – and that would not be the gridiron.

UPDATE: Here's the NY Fed link to the Rutgers-Newark win.
