Individual awards also were won by eighth-grade student Claire Heinle, second place, and eighth-grade student Danielle Kastor, ninth place.

Many of these students are now preparing for the state tournament, which will take place at The College of Wooster in late May. The team is coached by Maggie Blischak and junior high language arts teacher Sally Weakland.
