The members on the team are Xander Good, Izzy Hilderbrand, Nate Johnson, Collin Kinney, Shivali Singireddy, and Kylie Wagaman.

The Technology Bowl competition was very exciting. The Indiana Academy team made it to the final round of the competition, and with the score tied at 30 points it was down to the last question for the win. Xander Good buzzed in with the correct answer to give the Indiana Academy TSA team the win.

Kylie Wagaman was elected to be the 2019-2020 Indiana State TSA President. Since Kylie is graduating in May, she will be stepping down from this prestigious position, but was honored for her leadership in TSA.

At the very end of the Awards Ceremony, the Indiana Academy was announced as TSA State Champions. Next this team will be traveling to Nashville, TN to compete in the National TSA Championship. This event will be held at the end of June.

Congratulations to the Indiana TSA State Champions, and thanks to all of the team’s fans who have supported this team through their fundraising efforts.
