The Pirates sealed the championship with a 46-12 victory in the finals against Zane Trace High School, which also had a very memorable day by having both of its teams advance to the semi-finals with identical 6-0 records. Zane Trace Team 1 defeated Team 2 by score of 16-8 in the semi-finals to earn the spot in the finals. A total of thirty-two teams from 19 area high schools competed in the event with an all-expense paid trip – courtesy of DOE – to the National Science Bowl awaiting the champions.

Congratulations to all the teams who placed and/or participated in the competition. Special thanks to all of the volunteers who make this event possible every year.
