Kraemer Middle School’s Science Olympiad teams competed February 15 and 16 in the Orange County Regional Competition at University of California, Irvine. Kraemer’s two teams earned medals in almost every event at both levels, ultimately earning the varsity team a 2nd place finish and the junior varsity team a 3rd place finish in all of Orange County.
Principal Michael Young was there to support the Cubs as they competed and shared, “I very inspired by their dedication and performance.”
Kraemer’s varsity team will now move onto the state level competition at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena on Saturday, April 4. Last year at this competition, Kraemer won first place, earning the title of 2019 Southern California State Champions.
“Many thanks go to the parents, students, volunteers, and coach who have invested substantial time and energy to continue the team’s proud legacy of success,” Principal Young mentioned. “Go Kraemer SciOly!”
