The MLWGS Academic World Quest Team placed third in a national competition held in Washington, DC on April 26. Only one point separated the first, second and third place teams competing against nearly 50 teams from the nearly 90 other World Affairs Councils across the United States. 

The team included Christopher Benos (Chesterfield '14), Matthew King (Henrico '14), John Metz (Richmond '16), Christine Gao (Chesterfield '13), and Kevin Yuan (Henrico '14) as alternate. The World Affairs Council of Great Richmond sponsored the team after it placed first in the regional competition in February.
