May has competed in the Eclipse March Madness Challenge before, as well as other NCAA bracket challenges each year.

“I participated in the challenge in previous years so I knew about it,” May said. “I did other brackets (as well.) It’s one of my favorite times of the year.”

Emmendorfer used strategy when choosing his bracket.

“My strategy for the challenge was looking deep into highlights of their (NCAA teams’) past games,” Emmendorfer said. “(I) look where they lacked, (and I) really analyze the gameplay and coach’s plays for the games from highlights.”

Emmendorfer also enjoys participating in NCAA bracket challenges.

“I enjoy challenges like these because it’s a sport I am passionate about, and I love getting competitive,”Emmendorfer said.
