Science Olympiad Team Won 3rd Place at State

We are pleased to inform our school community that FSA Science Olympiad Team finished the season by winning the third place trophy at the State Science Olympiad Tournament held on Saturday, March 16 at Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta. Head Coaches Pam Walsh and Gloria Stathos were extremely proud of the fifteen-member team, who put in hundreds of hours after school and on weekends to prepare for this tournament. “Success in Science Olympiad requires lots of support from parents,” explained Mrs. Stathos. “We had eight parents who volunteered to coach events this year, none of whom were returning to coach an event they had previously coached. Six of these parents coached their students to medals at the state tournament.” According to Mrs. Walsh, “That is a stellar performance for a rookie coach.” Prospects for next year’s team look great as this year’s team included ten seventh graders.
