They’re back!Â Karen Russo’s sports marketing class at Hinsdale Central HS in Illinois has overtaken Nicole Rusch’s class at Pine Island HS in Minnesota for first place in SCC’s fantasy football sports marketing challenge.Â Â Thanks toÂ a fantastic response to the third sports marketing challenge (community relations), theÂ Omaha Outlaws front officeÂ is in great position to defend last year’s championship.
The San Antonio Roughriders, managed by Carolyn Province’s class at Grapevine HS in Texas, currently sits in third place while Andy Rucker’s class at Vista Murrieta HS in California (Honolulu Surf) enjoyed a big surge, jumping from 9th place to 4th.
