Daniel José Custódio '00 is team captain of SlamRichmond, Virginia's first team to compete in the PSI National Poetry competition. He led a five-member team to Austin, Texas to compete in the competition, which consists of 75 teams and 300 poets, for the second year in a row. "Modern-Day Gladiator," a group piece written by Daniel, was featured during the semi-finals. SlamRichmond plans to send a team to the competition next year and hopes that the experience they have gained in the last two will serve them well. According to Daniel, "We have all the ingredients to win the championship next year."
