The Innovators win the Sacramento Region Science Olympiad!
On Saturday, March 17, eighteen Del Paso Manor Mustangs competed in the Sacramento Regional Science Olympiad. Parents have been coaching nineteen teams of students for the past two months to prepare for the event. The competition consisted of nineteen events, and the Del Paso Manor Mustangs, ranging from third to sixth grade, medaled in twelve of those events. The Mustangs earned:
Five first place finishes
One second place finish
One third place finish
Four fourth place finishes
Five fifth place finishes
Those strong finishes allowed Del Paso Manor to win the overall competition and the students were awarded first place medals, a first place plaque and the champions trophy. The camaraderie between the parents, teachers, and students was inspiring all through the day, and when the winners were announced, all the Mustangs in attendance cheered for their teammates.
Special thanks goes out to all the coaches who volunteered numerous hours to prepare the students for a successful competition. Thank you to Andrew Holz for his organization and coordination of all the logistical components of the event. Teachers Mrs. Darrow and Mr. La Marr were the staff sponsors and also coached the Science Bowl team. If there was ever an example of a team victory, this was it!
This is the second consecutive win for the Del Paso Manor Mustangs.
