BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Palm Beach Schools) — The Science Olympiad team from Boca Raton High School completed its competition season ranked first in Florida and 19th among approximately 3,500 high school teams in the nation – the highest that a Florida team has ever received at a National Championship competition.

The team recently competed at the Science Olympiad National Championships at the University of Nebraska, and medaled in three events. Students competed in 23 diffhttp://files.ctctcdn.com/ab3c2691101/b6039ec4-4edb-4718-8508-d0f4d61352ed.jpgerent scientific events, from Anatomy and Physiology to Astronomy and Cell Biology to Entomology.
The team’s final rank is dependent on the team’s accomplishments in their individual competitions.

“We had a great mix of seasoned veterans, along with some new talent,” said Jon Benskin, the team’s coach. “Veterans performed in a magnificent way and rookies stepped up, proving that this team still has more to achieve.”

Benskin thanked his fellow teachers at Boca Raton High for promoting their students’ excellence and for helping them throughout the 10-month Science Olympiad season, and thanked Boca Raton High Principal Dr. Geoff McKee for his continued support.

“The team is already building and planning for next year,” Benskin said. “We are edging into the truly elite of Science Olympiad and next year we will be in the middle of the fight!”
