OHS Science Olympiad Earns 1st at ESU 10 Kearney Meet

    The Ogallala High School Science Olympiad team recently competed in Kearney at the ESU 10 Science Olympiad competition on March 21st.  Out of 21 teams from the region, the team tied with Ord for 1st place with 93 points. Adams Central was 2nd with 77 points, and Ravenna earned 3rd with 67 points. Other teams that competed included Cambridge, Gothenburg, Loup City, St. Paul, Northwest, Alma, Paxton, Central Valley, SEM, Centura, Elba, Central Valley, Elwood, and Brady. The team placed in the top six in 10 of the 13 events, including:

1st Anatomy/Physiology Chase Coggins and Alex Lind

2nd Astronomy Mikah Hoppens and Alex Lind

6th Astronomy Jordan McCormick and Hunter Reil

3rd Bridge Building Raelyn DeVries and Colter Robinette

6th Cell Biology Tim Eveland and Steph Skinner

4th Chem Lab Alexandria Simmerman and Colter Robinette

4th Hydrogeology Chase Coggins and Camile Unrein

6th It’s About Time Maylee Garcia and Mariah Morrow

2nd Robot Arm Zacchaeus Burnside and Camile Unrein

4th Write It Do It Abby Nguyen and Samuel Tschetter 

The students were thrilled to have done so well as there were many teams that were more experienced at the meet, and top ten in every event was something to be very proud of. Often teams that do well at this meet go on to do well at the state meet, so the team’s performance invigorated the members and have them looking forward to competing against some of the best Science Olympiad teams in the state. The team had some new members that contributed in some big ways, and veteran members tried out events that were new to them. The state Science Olympiad Meet is up next on April 23rd in Lincoln. Furthermore, the Ogallala Middle School took students to this meet for the second time ever. Brock Poppe and Blake Wyatt earned 4th in the Scrambler car event and 3rd in the Wind Power event. This is only the third year the middle school has been competing in Science Olympiad, and the team was composed of many younger students. Thereforetheir performance was substantial considering the lack of experience on the team.
