FSU student from Oldsmar advances to semifinals in "Jeopardy!" College Championship

Oldsmar

FSU student has another shot at 'Jeopardy!' win

Lea Tottle, an Oldsmar native and 2008 graduate of Palm Harbor University High School's International Baccalaureate program, is advancing to the semifinals on the Jeopardy! two-week College Championship. She will appear Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. on WFTS-Ch. 28. Tottle, 20, came in second during her first round of competition, but her high score earned her a wild-card slot — and a second chance to win the $100,000 grand prize. If she wins Wednesday, she advances to the Thursday and Friday finals. The junior at Florida State University is one of 15 students selected from thousands around the country to appear in the tournament.
