Help engineering teams raise funds for student scholarships!

Update: As of May 27 at 2:30 p.m.: Overclocked CSE Enthusiasts was in second place with $3510 raised, followed by Team Cymer with $2760 and ViaSat with $2440. Team Village was in first place with $4820.

There is a battle brewing between three engineering-related teams registering for this year's Triton 5K June 7. Team Cymer is currently in third place in terms of money raised for the event, with $1770, followed closely by ViaSat, with $1650 and by Overclocked CSE Enthusiasts, led by computer science chair Rajesh Gupta, with $1340. Feel free to throw your support behind either one. The funds go to student scholarships.

The competition prompted the following exchange on Facebook on the UCSD CSE Students and Alumni group between CSE alumni board president Lindsey Fowler and fellow board member Nikolai Devereaux, who is a program manager at ViaSat. Devereaux wondered if the rivalry between Overclocked CSE Enthusiasts and the ViaSat team is "the nerd version of Team Edward vs Team Jacob."
