Hanford High School kept its winning streak alive by nabbing top honors Saturday at the Department of Energy’s Regional Science Bowl.
The members of Hanford’s winning team are Jonah Bartrand, Chenguang Li, Sathvik Ramanan, Sean Thompson and An Wang.
They went up against Richland High School in the final round of the tournament. Topics cover biology, chemistry, mathematics, energy, physics and earth and space sciences.
Hanford has won the eight-hour long competition, which includes 20 local and regional teams, for three consecutive years.
The winning team advances with an expenses-paid trip to DOE’s National Science Bowl from April 24-28 in Washington D.C.
“We’ve gone to D.C. the last two years. As you can imagine, the competition at nationals is pretty stiff,” Bartrand, team captain, said after the adrenaline had cooled off. “We’ll study as hard as we can, and hopefully we make it out of the round-robin this time.”
