Galen University Wins Eco-Challenge

The Galen Warriors take the first place trophy

Not all 22 teams made it back to San Pedro Town from the Lagoon-Reef Eco-Challenge as two teams dropped out of the race as early as day one in the competition. For the first time in five years there was a neck to neck competition amongst four teams that showed much strength and endurance. Below are some of the highlights.
