I am extremely excited to announce that two combined teams from Milford Central Academy and Milford High School competed in April at the State Odyssey of the Mind Tournament in Middletown, Delaware.
In Problem 3, Aesop Gone Viral, our team showed extraordinary team work and performed especially well in style and spontaneous. Please congratulate Sera Molitor, Leah Molitor, Amber Landon, Molly Ochs, Lily Wiley, Cassandra Schreiber, and Felicity Annis for their hard work and dedication. Their coach was Kathleen Molitor of Mispillion Elementary.
In Problem 2 , Something Fishy, our team faced extremely tough competition and went above and beyond by earning a perfect score on their long-term problem, and outstanding scores in both style and spontaneous. This team scored second place in the state, and has earned a trip to the World Odyssey of the Mind Competition at the University of Iowa, in late May this year! If they can get necessary funding to attend the tournament, they will compete against Odyssey teams from the entire United States and countries such as England, France, Italy, Greece, China, South Korea, Singapore, and Russia. One of the amazing things about this team is that it consists of 5 middle school students and only one high school student, and still beat out competing teams who consisted of all high school students!
Please congratulate the following students for their outstanding creativity, teamwork and grit through a grueling and challenging competition: Caleb Brownstein, Bethany Pasmore, Bella Evans, Delaney Dillon, Ry’ana Johnson, and Shane DeCento. Their coaches are Dr. Adam Brownstein and Molly Brownstein. Way to go Team! We are all so proud of you, and you should be proud of yourselves for this huge accomplishment!
