The student team of Sergey Zinger, Mohammed Partapurwala, Jared Strohl, Jenny Syverud, Sean Cogliardi, Jillian Ryan, Kale Smimmo, AJ Hameline, and Greg Kaleka, won the Federal Reserve Bank of New York College Fed Challenge, edging out a half-dozen private colleges, including Harvard University and last year's winner, Rutgers University. The Geneseo team won the Upstate New York competition in Buffalo, beating Hamilton College, SUNY Binghamton and Cornell University in order to advance to the New York competition.
After their win in New York, the team went on to place a very close second in the national Federal Reserve Bank College Fed Challenge in Washington, D.C. Northwestern University of Chicago took the top honors, and Mount St. Mary's University of Maryland took third place. This was the first year Geneseo competed in the national competition. Léonie Stone and Christopher Annala, both assistant professors of economics at Geneseo, are advisors to the team.
