    University of Kentucky Entomology was well represented at the North Central Branch (NCB) of the Entomological Society of America Meeting that was held in Madison, Wisconsin from March 18 to 21, 2018. Our Linnaean team (Sarah Meierotto, Josiah Ritchey, Lauren Fann, and Ryan Kuesel), got better with each round and finished in 2nd place. They qualify for the ESA competition to be held in Vancouver later this year. A check for $2500 will help to defray their costs.
