And then there were 14...

*UPDATED!* Due to a scoring snafu, Tri-Valley had two additional students advance to State in Chemistry: Juniors Nathan Engelhardt and Jonathan Kothe will also be representing our school. Way to go!

The High School WYSE Team traveled to Illinois Central College in East Peoria on Wednesday, March 4th to compete in the Sectional level of the WYSE Academic Challenge. The 14 students took tests in a variety of subjects related to engineering, math, English, and the sciences. Overall, the team earned 3rd place in their division (schools with enrollments of 300-700):

1st - U-High (491)

2nd - St. Bede Academy (Peru) (443)

3rd - Tri-Valley (425)

4th - Eureka (408)

5th - Hall (336)

6th - Fieldcrest (331)

Alas, only the top two teams advance to State, so our team season comes to an end.

Individually, we had several students place and three advance to State:

Samuel Anderson (Senior) - 3rd Place Biology

Nathan Engelhardt (Junior) - 3rd Place Chemistry (Advances to State)

Stephanie Dorris (Senior) - 2nd Place English (Advances to State)

Ariel Foss (Senior) - 1st Place Engineering Graphics (Advances to State)

Matt Martell (Senior)- Advances to State in Mathematics by beating the qualifying score

Jonathan Kothe (Junior) - Advances to State in Chemistry by beating the qualifying score

Steph, Ariel, and Matt will compete next month at the State Finals on the U of I campus.

Other members of the team include:

Jacob Foley (Sophomore)

Judy Heiner (Junior)

Andrew Holloway (Senior)

Brandon James (Senior)

Lucas Kauzlarich (Senior)

Jeremy Wallace (Junior)

Corey Williamson (Sophomore)

Travis Zook (Sophomore)
