Stock Market Game

Congratulations to Darkstar, the apparent winners of the Stock Market Game.

After 10 weeks, the students from Bill Glisson's history class at the Miami Valley School turned a mock $100,000 into $141,580 - the most of any Ohio team playing this fall. They invested in a selection of stocks, but it was huge gains in Carrier Access Corp. that clinched their victory in the game's middle school division.

But a closer race in the high school division would be hard to imagine, as the top four teams in the investment simulation competition are all within $700.

The Knock-Around-Guys from Joe Vanderkolk's economics class at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy had the lead through the end of trading Thursday. But their investments might not be enough to stave off a charge from Team 668 from D. Russel Lee Career Center.

Debra Schick's economics class finished strong, thanks mostly to their investments in R.J. Reynolds Tobacco and General Motors.

Rankings will be listed Monday.
