A 20-year-old college student with Ridgewood roots took home $26,000 on ABC's "Jeopardy! College Championship" Thursday and will go on to compete for $100,000 Monday night.

Host Alex Trebek said Rebecca Rosenthal, a sophomore at Swarthmore College, "owned the game" before the correct answer to the final question was revealed.

Her parents watched the live show from home in Ridgewood, NorthJersey.com said.
