HHS Science Olympiad Wins Regionals

    Hobbs High School brought home a team championship from this weekend’s Science Olympiad contest after scoring its highest point total ever in a regional competition.
 HHS manhandled 10 other schools in its category during the Saturday contest by scoring a first- or second-placefinish in 16 of 23 events. The competition was held on the campus of the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell.
Students prepared for the event by studying after school and on weekends beginning in October. While the majority of events were scored on the basis of written test responses, some tasks required students to build objects or demonstrate tasks they prepared ahead of time. Hobbs High School last won a first-place trophy at a regional event in 2008, according to HHS science teacher Ashley Romine, a co-coach of the winning team.
Competing in the same category as Hobbs High School, the Freshman High School team finished in fourth place. In the junior division, Houston Middle School took third place while Heizer tied for ninth. By virtue of their finishes, HHS, the FHS and Houston Middle School qualified for advancement to the state contest in Socorro later this year. This year’s crop of HHS regional winners said they will again be hitting the books on weekends and after school in order to prepare for that competition, which has more categories than the regional contest. Top three finishers at Hobbs schools were as follows:

Hobbs High School:Rushi Mankad, first,Anatomy and Physiology; Kenneth Hafer and Brady Spears, first, Astronomy;Breanna Ellison and Rachel Johnson, first, Circuit Lab; Jordan Said, first,Designer Genes; Rushi Mankad and Rachel Johnson, first; Write it, Do It; Mankadand Rachel Johnson, first; Elastic Launched Glider;Hafer, Nikki Cantu and Hayley Teague, first, Robot Arm; Hafer and Said, first, TechnicalProblem Solving; Jordan Benge,Courtney Hall and Hayley Teague, first, Thermodynamics;Said, first, Water Quality; Hafer and Ellison, first, Materials Science;Michaela Nunnally and Madeline Woody,second, Forestry; Hafer and BradySpears, second, Gravity Vehicle; RachelJohnson and Whitney Marsh, second, Mag Lev; hHafer and Madeline Woody, second,Remote Sensing.
