ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A student studying at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis will be among the contestants on the college championship of “Jeopardy!”
The school says 18-year-old freshman Gary Tse of Ellicott City, Maryland, will compete on the show that airs Friday at 7 p.m. The school says he’ll face off against a Georgetown University student and a student from the University of Kentucky.
The show’s college championship runs from Feb. 13 to Feb. 24 and features 15 students competing for a $100,000 grand prize.
The school says that to get on the show Tse completed an online test and attended an in-person interview in New York. The school says Tse is passionate about computer science, English and the community outreach program, Mids for Kids.
