Wednesday’s episode of Jeopardy! featured a former Upper Peninsula resident and Northern Michigan University graduate Mary Beth Hammerstrom. She was part of the Teacher’s Tournament competing for a spot in the finals.
Hammerstrom spent most of the evening in second place. At one point she was tied with another contestant, but correctly answered a Daily Double and took the lead.
Hammerstrom won the competition by answering the final question correctly. She won close to $29,601, and beat a contestant by $1.
She will compete Thursday and Friday in the two-day final for $100,000.
