On Friday, Feb. 5, the RBHS ACES team participated in the regional competition virtually. Students on the team met in Mr. Mageeā€™s classroom and proceeded to take two academic challenge tests before eating pizza and heading home for the weekend. Even though the team is small this year, it is definitely mighty. With the second place win, the team will now advance to the sectional competition in March.

Individual awards went to Dylan Roscow, first in math and computer science; Ethan Fritsche, first in physics; Ben DeRousse, second in engineering graphics; Max Rodenmeyer, third in engineering graphics; Hannah Sievers, second in chemistry and Bailey Fulton, third in english and third in chemistry.
