The PWMS Science Olympiad team took home five medals at the O'Neal Competition in Souther Pines this weekend. Coaches Jordan Marmara, Mark Moore, Rebekah Westneat and Brad Pearson traveled with their 18 member team to compete against 16 area schools in over 20 events.
Since the team was founded they have continuously set the bar high for achievement and this weekend was no different. The team, cosisting of 6th, 7th and 8th graders, earned the following medals:
Boomilever - 4th Place
Crimbusters - 5th Place
Misson Possible - 4th Place
Road Scholar - 2nd Place
Write It Do It - 5th Place.
In addition to placing in the above events, the PWMS Team won the "Spirit Award" for showing excellent sportsmanship and behavior throughout the day.
The team is looking forward to continuing to practice before their next competition in January where they will again face off against area schools in similar events. In March they will compete in Regionals and attempt to earn a bid in the State Competition in April.
