Schoeler: Washington State students compete in SABR Analytics Conference

From Cody Schoeler at the Daily Evergreen on March 20, 2019:

Four WSU students participated in a competition over spring break at the Society for American Baseball Research Analytics Conference in Phoenix, Arizona.

Dante Ludlow, junior sports management major, said he found out about the competition while he searched for internships.

Ludlow said he was able to get a team together, despite only having three weeks before the registration deadline.
