Congratulations to everyone who participated! Wish there were more specifics in this article, though! Do you realize how often this is? 44 middle school teams in the Region and we take second and third, and we WIN for High School? Details please!


I would have really loved to see the details printed. Sports details are always printed with names. Why not here?


Exactly! There are numerous families, teachers, coaches and students involved in Science Olympiad, and our community has become known for doing well in these competitions. Let's embrace it, Tribune!
