With a 15th crop judging title under their belt, K-State showcased their prowess in crop evaluation and analysis.

Led by Landon Trout, a junior hailing from Scott City, Kansas, the team demonstrated remarkable individual achievements. Trout clinched the national championship in the crops contest, excelling in various categories including laboratory practice, agronomic exam, and math practical. Ashley Chandler and Renae Sinclair contributed significantly, securing third and fourth positions respectively.

In a historic feat, K-State also secured their inaugural victory in the knowledge bowl competition, further solidifying their position as leaders in agricultural education. Under the captaincy of Chandler, the team tackled diverse agricultural topics with precision and expertise.

The NACTA judging conference served as the culmination of K-State's spring season, where they emerged victorious in both the crops judging and knowledge bowl competitions.

Their triumph over 22 competing teams in crops judging, including the runner-up Iowa State University, highlights their unparalleled dedication and skill.

Acknowledging the collective effort of the team, which includes members such as Quinten Bina, Leno Caldieraro, and Carson Orpin, underscores the collaborative spirit driving K-State's success. The coaching prowess of Rachel Veenstra and Sarah Frye played a pivotal role in shaping the team's performance and strategy.

As K-State continues to raise the bar in agricultural competitions, their commitment to excellence is an inspiration to aspiring agronomists and agricultural enthusiasts. Celebrate their achievements as they continue to pave the way for innovation and excellence in agricultural education and research.
