From Mamtha, the coach of the local teams:
YES!!!!! GO Albemarle Homeschoolers!
Both the Odyssey of the Mind teams fought fierce competition from the best of teams across the State of Virgina, to emerge victorious, at the State Competition held at Sterling, VA on April 5th!!!!
Congratulations to the Wonderful Muses team for winning 2nd place in their category at States, and qualifying for World Finals in May 2008!
It is extremely rare for a 1st time team to receive such a recognition.
The kids have worked very hard, and contributed more than their best! The families whole-heartedly supported this "adventure!" Yes, the kids, the families are exhausted and stunned!
We are going to need support from the homeschooling community to compete at World Finals!
