Recently, both of Northport High School’s Science Olympiad Teams competed at the Division C - Eastern Long Island Regional competition on Jan. 26 and earned 14 top 10 medals. The New York State Science Olympiad is a nonprofit organization that aims to engage and challenge students in different areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by hosting competitive team tournaments throughout the state.

Five groups of Northport’s students placed impressively, ranking second and third in the following five different categories:

Second place in Astronomy: seniors LeeAnn Chu and Beck Mamus
Third place in Circuit Lab: seniors Nathaniel Wang and Jack Pagoaga
Third place in the Duct Tape Challenge: sophomores Gavin Murdock and Nicole Foster
Second place in Geologic Mapping: sophomore Mia Pancari and freshman Esther Loring
Second in Parasitology: junior Isabella DeBrino and freshman Matthew Holm

Additionally, one of Northport’s two teams finished twelfth overall out of 52 teams. Great work, students!
