KVOE Beat the Bracket winners picked up their winnings with smiles on their faces.


Brittany Bontrager and Myles Arndt, Sr., first and second placers respectively, had brackets that only differed by one point.


Bontrager's 123 total points earned her a Treager Grill from Sutherlands and a $750 lawn maintenance package from Scott's Lawn and Landscaping. The winnings could not have come at a better time, since Bontrager and her husband are in the process of purchasing a new home.

Arndt was given a $300 gift card from Emporia State Federal Credit Union for his second place total of 122 points. He plans to put the earnings towards needed repairs on his truck. He says the hardest part of the Beat the Bracket competition was picking the final four.

Third place winner Dave Crouch was unable to attend the gifting ceremony, because he was in Hawaii. His 111 total points earned him a $100 Visa gift card from ESFCU.


Competitors started their brackets on March 13 by picking them up from a sponsor and filling them out completely. Additional points were earned by turning in buzzwords after hearing them on the morning sportscast on KVOE.
