The Fulton Science Academy Private School Science Olympiad Team placed second in the State Tournament held at Lambert High School on Saturday, March 21. Their second place finish qualifies them to compete at the National Tournament to be held on May 16 at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. FSAPS students placed first in nine of the 23 Science Olympiad events. “All told, we medaled in 17 events,” said head coach Pam Walsh. “At Regionals, we beat Dodgen Middle School by 8 points and today, Dodgen beat us by 8 points. It just shows how evenly matched these two team are. We’ll work hard to prepare for Nationals and will hopefully represent the state well.
