    Lyndsey on the "Jeopardy!" set with one of her competitors, a student from the University of Missouri

Lyndsey Romick, a sophomore from Grants Pass, Ore., appears in an upcoming episode of “Jeopardy!”

Romick, who traveled to California in December to compete in the game show’s college tournament, cannot divulge the results of the show before it airs on February 1.

“The competition went by so fast!” Romick said. “I really loved getting to meet the other competitors and Alex Trebek. During one commercial break, he went on a tangent about how much he wanted to be an Avatar. It was great!”

Members of the Lewis & Clark community will gather in Templeton Campus Center’s Council Chambers to have a “Jeopardy!” viewing party and cheer for Romick when the show airs. It will appear locally on KATU Channel 2 on February 1 at 7 p.m.
