All students did an awesome job regardless of whether they have medals. Many were very close. We had quite the cluster of black polos there, looking good and intimidating. I’m impressed at the diversity of our abilities — we had entries from debate to computer science. I’m also excited that we had so many underclassmen already participating at he regional level.”  – Amanda Adair.

The students are to compete in state in Austin May 23, 2016 as a wildcard entry.
