Science Olympiad Team Soars At Regionals

Congratulations to our Science Olympiad Team (coached by Angie Pleasant) for an outstanding performance at the 2016 Regional Science Olympiad Tournament.  Our team competed against 25 Varsity Teams and 15 JV Teams from New Hanover, Pender, Brunswick, Bladen, and Columbus counties.  Students prepare for this competition during a year long elective class and will continue to train as they prepare for state-wide competition.

The Varsity Team won 5th Place overall in the region which qualifies them to move on to the State Science Olympiad Tournament at NC State in Raleigh on April 22nd and 23rd.  Join us in congratulating the following medal winners from this year’s Regional Tournament:
