Congratulations to the Upper School Science Olympiad team who qualified for State for the third year in a row! SPA secured its spot in the state competition by placing fourth (of nine teams) in the regional tournament at Mounds View High School on Saturday, February 4. The Spartans will compete in the Division C State Tournament on March 4 at Bethel University, participating in 23 events ranging from ecology to wind power. This is an increase from the regional tournament where the fifteen-member squad only needed to master 14 categories.
Upper School teachers and club advisors Ned Heckman and Beth Seibel-Hunt attribute the success of the group to excellent student leadership from Adnan Askari '18, Ben Konstan '18, and Ben Mellin'18, as well as the determined efforts by all to help the team make its way up the state rankings.
Good luck SPA Science Olympiad!
