For those of you have been following the Science Olympiad team this year I wanted to send out a quick update about our results at the nationals competition held at Cornell University. There were 60 teams from all 50 states so it was the biggest competition of the year by far. Our overall team score was 46th (the competition at nationals is crazy good!!). That being said, we did have several events that went very well:
35th in Herpetology - Kali York and Tanner Meeks
33rd in Anatomy - Josephine Schmidt and Kali York
20th in Protein Modeling - Eli Dallon, Tanner Meeks and Sydnee West (all sophomores!!)
8th in Fermi Questions - Bryson Evans and Trevor Larsen
The 8th place finish is the best event finish in Maple Mountain history and our first time ever breaking into the top 10!!

Thank you for your support of the team and the encouragement you show these students as they try and push themselves above and beyond the normal academic challenges of high school.
