Six members of Delta Epsilon Chi represented the College of Eastern Utah at the state tournament hosted by Utah Valley State College with Daren Larsen and Kellan Stevens bringing home a first-place finish in business law.

According to DEX adviser David Cassdiy, Larsen and Stevens had one hour to prepare a case and then present it to a panel of three judges. Their first place is the first time in five years that CEU has had anyone take a first in state competition.

The CEU team consisted of Randon Kerr (business club president), Larsen, Stevens, Ray Smithson, Janaye Milano and Daniel Powell. Everyone on the CEU team placed in the top six in their event.

"Randon's leadership and enthusiasm contributed not only to the team's success in the competition but his organizational skills and leadership have been essential to the success of the business club this school year," Cassidy added.

"CEU will send four students to Orlando, Fla., to compete in the national event April 21-24. They will represent Utah in that competition and despite the increased competition at this level, I am confident that Utah's past success will continue.

I would not be surprised to see our business law team take first in the nation – they are that good, Cassidy said.
