Wickert placed first in Impromptu Speaking and second in both Client Service and Business Communication.  Gamez placed first in Website Design, Desktop Publishing and Computer Application. Sierra Evans took third in Help Desk, Mary Chavez was third in Hospitality Management and Jonathan Borchert received third in networking Concepts.
