Congratulations to this team of Western New Yorkers from UB, who were on NBC's "Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge". The group of math students from UB entered the show's mile-long competition from grueling obstacles at a chance at a $250,000! WGRZ caught up with one of the UB students, whose team is going to the second round:

We looked at everything super closely... figured out the most optimal way to do it. That's what math really helps you with. It's figuring out the most efficient way to do something, not necessarily by numbers, but just seeing what we could do best spending the least amount of energy and getting through the fastest," [Trevor] Bernard said."
