On March 2, the Tower Hill Science Olympiad team traveled to Wilmington College to participate in the Science Olympiad. After finishing 34th (out of 56 teams) last year, the squad finished 20th (out of 57) this year. After taking home four medals last year, this year we brought home eight medals. More importantly, the team is building momentum. Although we will miss our strong senior leadership next year, we have a very capable group of freshmen, sophomores and juniors who are ready to keep us moving up the ranks.
This excitement can mainly be attributed to Brooke Livingston ’19, who provided tremendous leadership and set the example of how to compete at the highest level. Here is a list of the participants and the medal winners.
