Top Ops Team Makes Nebraska Proud at ACE

Nebraska Top Ops
(L to R) Eric Lee, Steve Kelley, and Ken Swanson

The Top Ops team of Steve Kelley, Eric Lee, and Ken Swanson represented Nebraska at the ACE conference in Las Vegas in mid-June. The team competed in three rounds against some tough competition. In their second round, the Nebraska team was one question shy of winning the round and their third round came down to a tiebreaker; however, they did not make it to the finals.

The two repeating powerhouses of West Palm Coast (Florida) and Alabama-Birmingham dueled it out again this year with Alabama-Birmingham coming out on top. Everyone agreed that the questions were tougher this year and that the teams were very competitive. There were no regulatory questions, which is historically a strong area for the Nebraska team.

The Section is very proud of the team for giving it their best shot and Steve, Eric, and Ken also appreciate the support of the Board and the Membership.
