The middle school Science Olympiad team hosted another impressive Science Olympiad tournament Saturday, Dec. 8. The team took first place in the competition with 85 points. Thirty-three teams from four states competed in the tournament.

Middle school science teacher and Science Olympiad team sponsor Mary Maxson said, "An undertaking of this size does not happen without everyone pitching in to do their part. Not only was everyone working hard, but they were all smiling, which really impressed me. That type of attitude is a wonderful representation of Pembroke Hill, and especially important for our visiting teams."
