Respiratory Care Students Compete in Annual Sputum Bowl

For the first time, FSCJ’s respiratory care students recently competed in the Florida Society for Respiratory Care’s third annual Student Sputum Bowl. Two teams representing FSCJ joined eight other teams from colleges and universities throughout Florida. Players participated in a double-elimination tournament featuring several rounds of games.

In the Student Sputum Bowl, teams of three take part in a “Jeopardy!”-style competition in which questions are asked. The first team to buzz in with the correct response receives a point and the team with the most points at the conclusion of regulation wins the game.   

One of FSCJ’s teams was able to win twice before being eliminated. FSCJ’s second team made it all the way to the tournament finals but ultimately lost to Valencia College by a score of 14-9.

“I am so proud of the students who competed! They did a wonderful job and represented FSCJ very well,” said Respiratory Care Program Director and Professor John Salazar.

The respiratory students were able to defeat teams from Valencia College earlier in the competition as well as teams from Daytona State College, Nova Southeastern University and Palm Beach State College. Well done to these hard-working team players.
