The Innovators win the Sacramento Region Science Olympiad!
On Saturday, March 25, 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:
5 first place medals
2 second place medals
4 third place medals
1 fourth place medal
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 Jocelyn Liu and Wendy Overly for their 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!
