More Science Olympiad Success!

At this weekend's Marquette University High School Invite, the Belleville High School Science Olympiad Team took 2nd place in the Small School Division and 3rd place overall. They missed 1st place by a mere 19 points! Mrs. Smith was particularly smitten with the trophy the team received- a silver-plated Erlenmeyer flask topped with a dinosaur.
