Laws & Disorder from the Allstate Center along with Yogic Tetrad from Seminole Campus both earned an average team score of 1,300. This total was the highest among all teams.
The Yogic Tetrad is now a three-time wellness Challenge championship team. The members of this team are Delynda Keefe, Patricia Matchette, Anita Naravane and Anthony LaPorte.
Team Captain, Anita Naravane, had this to say: “I love the quote by Maya Angelou, ‘People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’ We as a team just make each other feel good about ourselves, and support and encourage each other to reach our goals.”
Laws & Disorder also tied for first and this team consists of Christine Pribyl, Jenny Laws, and Chris Swift.
TT&Co. came in first place at the Clearwater Campus
Captain, Christine Pribyl said this: “We are proud to continue the tradition of an Allstate team succeeding in the Wellness Challenge. Our lunchtime “power hour” is a favorite part of our day and keeps us moving, and we are lucky to have an awesome gym on campus. If one of our teammates didn’t have to have a titanium joint implanted during the last few days of the Challenge, we’d be solo victors!”
