Photon Cup ends in a tie, but cup goes to Physics after penalty kick decision
The purpose of the Photon Cup is to bring together optics undergrads, grads, faculty, and staff in a common pursuit to build meaningful relationships outside of the academic setting. During the preparation for and the soccer game itself, strong bonds were formed within our department, creating team spirit and fostering the idea of an "Optics family". Winning is only a secondary goal (and we all know that penalty kicks are almost like the lottery, right? ). The optics team showed an extraordinary display of spirit and teamwork in the field today, and for this we applaud everybody!
Next year, we will be sure to bring the Photon Cup back to our department!
