Congratulations to the Lyme / Old Lyme High School Science Olympiad team for their impressive showing at their first-ever High School Science Olympiad tournament!
While the Lyme/Old Lyme Middle School Science Olympiad team is not new to the competition, a group of students who have competed on the middle school team reached an age where they could no longer compete in the Division B tournament (grades 6-9). These Olympians pushed for the district and their coaches to start a high school team and promised to continue on the path of excellence that they’ve become accustomed to working towards and they delivered!!
The Lyme/Old Lyme Science Olympiad team is the proud recipient of the trophy that is given to the HIGHEST SCORING NEW TEAM!
While our team had less than half the competitors needed to field a full team, they’ve proven that they’re dedication to learning pays off. The team competed in twelve of twenty-three events and scored in the top 10 out of 44 teams for seven of those events including earning gold medals in Invasive Species and Rocks and Minerals as well as taking bronze medals in Microbe Mission and Forensics.
