It was a sweet victory for the Fulton Science Academy Private School Science Olympiad Team as they won first place in the Regional Tournament held on Valentine’s Day at the University of North Georgia Gainesville Campus. Competition at the tournament was tough as FSAPS was up against perennial rival Dodgen Middle School. “Our students always enjoy competing against Dodgen,” said Head Coach Pam Walsh. “They are such a strong team and our students know they’ve got to be at their best.” The awards ceremony was intense as the lead switch from FSAPS to Dodgen several times, but in the end, FSAPS won by 8 points.

The top five schools from the tournament will advance to the State Science Olympiad Tournament in March, so FSAPS will be up against Dodgen once again. “We’ve got our work cut out for us to prepare for the State Tournament,” said Walsh. “We know Dodgen and the other teams will be working hard and the competition will only get tougher.” The team’s goal is to qualify for the National Science Olympiad Tournament to be held at the University of Nebraska. Only the top two teams in Georgia will advance.
