    IT'S REALLY SHORT RIGHT NOW BUT THAT'S BECAUSE NOBODY'S REPLIED TO MY EMAIL ASKING FOR INFORMATION YET. AS SOON AS I GET MORE INFO AND QUOTES, IT WILL BECOME WAY WAY WAY LONGER Very Happy

    There are fifty states in the nation, and at least a thousand schools in each state. Out of all those schools, and all those students, AHS still has the privilege of being known as home to some of the brightest students in America – all because of Science Bowl. At the National Competition late last April in Washington, D.C. these industrious science scholars placed 4th in the nation, earning the privilege of meeting First Lady Michelle Obama and even shaking her hand.

    This was a fitting reward for the dedicated members of Science Bowl, who began preparation for Nationals as early on as last summer, barely a few weeks after picking out their new members. The required qualifications include an extensive knowledge in numerous different branches of science, including everything from astronomy to ________

    Seniors Jason Jong, Alex Wang and Eddie Xue, and juniors Samuel Zeng and Derek Chou were the five members selected out of ___ total people in Science Bowl to best represent the team. “Quote about experience,” said one of those five people.

    Ok I made it longer Very Happy still a couple of blanks to fill in though

    There are fifty states in the nation, and at least a thousand schools in each state. Out of all those schools, and all those students, AHS still has the privilege of being known as the home of some of the brightest students in America – all because of Science Bowl. At the National Competition late last April in Washington, D.C. these industrious science scholars placed 4th in the nation, earning the privilege of meeting First Lady Michelle Obama and even shaking her hand.

    This was a fitting reward for the dedicated members of Science Bowl, who began preparation for Nationals as early on as last summer, barely a few weeks after picking out their new members. The required qualifications included an extensive knowledge in numerous different branches of science, including everything from astronomy to anatomy, as well as fast reflexes and good cooperation skills. The team held weekly meetings after school every _______, in E-8, the room of their advisor Mrs. Cherryl Mynster. Their hard worked paid off at Regionals last February, where they won first place, qualifying for Nationals in the process.

    Seniors Jason Jong, Alex Wang and Eddie Xue, and juniors Samuel Zeng and Derek Chou were the five members selected out of ___ total people in Science Bowl to best represent the team at Nationals. On May __, the team left the confines of California for the nation's capital - specifically, _______, where the six-day tournament was being held.

    The actual competition day was preceded by two introductory days, where teams got to know each other while exploring the wonders of Washington, D.C. They participated in a scavenger hunt in the National Mall. Senior Alex Wang explained, "You get points for solving riddles, points for taking pictures with certain things in the picture, and points for mingling with other teams and having them in your pictures. We forgot to answer a few riddles, [but] got most of the pictures." The second day was 'Science Day', where teams got to listen to seminars by noted scientists, followed by an afternoon of hands-on activities involving common laws of physics.

    The next day was the true competition day, which, according to Alex, was "the most important day of our high school lives until graduation." For AHS, the tournament started with two of the most difficult challenges of the day, against Marshfield and Dos Pueblos, both extremely close matches. Despite the tough opponents, AHS easily qualified for the double-elimination portion of the tournament. “The visual bonuses were brutal, because we'd have to answer something like 4 questions relating to the picture, using the letters to give our answers to the four parts. And we only have 30 seconds to do so. And all four parts would have to be correct to gain the 10 bonus points," explained junior Derek Chou about the complex competition format.

    Out of all their matches of the day, Science Bowl lost only __ of their matches, including one to defending champion Mira Loma HS. Their hard work through all the past year set them apart as one of the top five best Science Bowl teams in the nation. Congratulations to Science Bowl, and best of luck for next year! If you wish to join Science Bowl for next year, tryouts will be held __________.

    There are fifty states in the nation, and at least a thousand schools in each state. Out of all those schools, and all those students, AHS still has the privilege of being known as the home of some of the brightest students in America – all because of Science Bowl (SB). At the National Competition late last April in Washington, D.C. these industrious science scholars placed 4th in the nation, earning the privilege of meeting First Lady Michelle Obama and even shaking her hand.

    This was a fitting reward for the dedicated members of Science Bowl, who began preparation for Nationals as early on as last summer, barely a few weeks after picking out their new members. The required qualifications included an extensive knowledge in numerous different branches of science, including everything from astronomy to anatomy, as well as fast reflexes and good cooperation skills. The team held weekly meetings after school every Monday in E-8, the room of their advisor Mrs. Cherryl Mynster, and held follow-up meetings for two hours every Friday at one of the members' houses. Their hard work paid off at Regionals last February, where they won first place, qualifying for Nationals in the process.

    Seniors Jason Jong, Alex Wang and Eddie Xue, and juniors Samuel Zeng and Derek Chou were the five members selected out of ten total people in Science Bowl to best represent the team at Nationals. On Apr. 29, the team left the confines of California for five days of intense competition at the nation's capital - specifically, the National 4-H Conference Center, where the six-day tournament was being held.

    The actual competition day was preceded by two introductory days, where teams got to know each other while exploring the wonders of Washington, D.C. They participated in a scavenger hunt in the National Mall. Senior Alex Wang explained, "You get points for solving riddles, points for taking pictures with certain things in the picture, and points for mingling with other teams and having them in your pictures. We forgot to answer a few riddles, [but] got most of the pictures." The second day was 'Science Day', where teams got to listen to seminars by noted scientists, followed by an afternoon of hands-on activities involving common laws of physics.

And we only have 30 seconds to do so. And all four parts would have to be correct to gain the 10 bonus points," explained junior Derek Chou about the complex competition format.

    Out of all their matches of the day, Science Bowl remained undefeated through the round-robin portion of the tournament, and lost only two of their playoff matches, including one to defending champion Mira Loma HS. "We did extremely well and exceeded our expectations," SB captain Eddie Xue proudly stated, going on to say that "Nationals was one of the highlights of [his] senior year."

    Science Bowl's hard work through all the past year proved to be time well spent indeed - their dedication and outstanding scientific knowledge set them apart as one of the top five best teams in the nation, and also won Science Bowl a $1000 check, as well as TI-Nspire calculators for each of the five team members who went to Nationals. Congratulations to Science Bowl, and best of luck for next year!
