A Wild Win

Jamie Donaldson, Staff Reporter

On Jan. 27th three teams from our school competed in the Manasota Regional Envirothon. Of the teams that competed for Manatee, two of them placed. The team that ranked first was team LG (abbreviated). Team Envirosquad placed second. Overall, 22 teams participated in this event.  

Competitors had five different categories that tested their knowledge on different facets of environmental science. Students were tested on Soils, Aquatics, Wildlife and Forestry. Our teams did extraordinarily well, and all participants should be proud of what they accomplished. Good luck at states, everyone.

Fun in First Place. Team LG celebrates their win in the 2022 Manasota Regional Envirothon. After months of studying and preparing, they finally claimed their victory. “I had only met my teammates on the morning of the competition, but it turned out to be incredibly fun spending the day with my new friends. I’m glad I had the privilege to be a part of this team,” says John (Jack) Austin (10).
