Science Olympiad Team Clinches First Place at Invitational

The Science Olympiad team at J.C. Booth Middle has been busy practicing and preparing for upcoming rounds of competitions which will hopefully have them returning to the national tournament again this year.

The Booth team officially placed second but took first by default out of 45 teams in a recent invitational hosted by Solon Middle in Solon, Ohio. The host school placed first but did not take the trophy so it went to Booth.

Teams represented the states of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and the District of Columbia. Five of the teams placed in the top eight at the National Science Olympiad last year, making it a very competitive event.

“It was an awesome tournament and a wonderful experience for the students. We all came back with the dedication to work very hard and to learn from our mistakes,” says team sponsor and Booth science teacher Mary Wilde.

In addition to brining home first place, the team also won the spirit trophy.
