First Science Olympiad Competition

Over the weekend, Belleville High School students, led by their Coach Smith, traveled to Boyceville, WI, to compete in an invitational tournament. Mrs. Smith started the team this year, and this was their first chance to compete against other schools and students. The results were amazing for their first effort! Fourteen students competed. They brought home 6 medals- one 3rd, two 5th, and three 6th place finishes. The team placed 10th overall (with 34 teams in their division) and were voted "Best New School!" Congratulations to Mrs. Smith and her team! For more information on the type of events at this competition, go the the link below:
