Congratulations to the Lyme / Old Lyme High School Science Olympiad team for their impressive showing at the High School Science Olympiad tournament!
The Lyme/Old Lyme High School Science Olympiad team, in just its second year of competing, advanced 23 places from last year with their fabulous showing of 7th place overall this year! Quite an accomplishment on any level but take into account that 11 students had to field what should be a 15-person team and you get an idea of the perseverance, tenacity, and drive that our Olympians demonstrated. The Lyme-Old Lyme Science Olympiad team put forth a tremendous and relentless effort!
The team’s first run to the podium for a medal was by the high school team Captains Brynn McGlinchey and Gary Bocian with their 4th place medal in Forensics. Nick Fava and Nic Roth were next on the glorious podium-run with their 3rd place finish in Mission Possible. Ryan McTigue and Emily O’Brien would follow with a coveted gold medal in Optics. Lastly, another gold medal run was made by Ryan McTigue and Kylie Hall for rocks and minerals.
In addition to competing on the high school Science Olympiad team, many of the Olympians have also taken on a leadership role and coach specific events for the middle school team. Kylie Hall has also taken on the additional and mammoth role of coaching both the middle school and high school Science Olympiad teams and this effort is key to the teams’ success.
The Lyme/Old Lyme Science Olympiad team is certainly a community effort with parents and community members all offering their time and expertise to help in a competition that consists of 23 STEM events that change every year! The Lyme/Old Lyme community support, whether it is directly coaching the Olympians, helping to manage all the behind-the-scenes tasks, making monetary donations to allow the team to purchase much-needed supplies, or any of the other ways the community has supported the team are truly why the Lyme-Old Lyme Science Olympiad team has been so successful.
A special thank you to Pfizer and Benchmark Wealth Management who continue to invest in their community by supporting the Lyme/Old Lyme Science Olympiad team.
Thank you for your continued support; together we are making a difference!
