LJHS Science Olympiad Team Excels at Competition
LHS Science Olympiad events


The Lisle Junior High Science Olympiad team competed at the Waubonsie Valley High School Regional Science Olympiad competition on 2/24.  Ms Keigher & Ms. Blatchley are SO proud of our team members, who lived up to our team motto of “Have fun, do your best” and were fantastic representatives for our school.  We saw our team members respectfully interacting with event supervisors, lending goggles to other teams that forgot theirs, and being supportive spectators while other teams were competing.

A HUGE highlight of the day was when our school was recognized as the Spirit Award winners, for “displaying the best overall sportsmanship and spirit of the competition.”  The Spirit Award is evidence of what Ms. Keigher and Ms. Blatchley love to tell adults from other schools: GREAT kids go to Lisle Junior High.  

Our team members also won medals in several events!  

3rd place medals were earned by:

  • Mia D and Olivia C in JV Write It Do It
  • Zach S and Avery G in Optics

2nd place medals were earned by:

  • Zach S and Zac C in Air Trajectory
  • Grace H and Ava S in Crime Busters
  • Zach S, Andrew T and Konrad F in Experimental Design
  • Zac C and Konrad F in Road Scholar
  • Ava S and Jane L in Write It Do It

We earned two first place medals:

  • Avery G and Nicky G in Fossils
  • Konrad F and Andrew T in Roller Coaster

The team also earned a bid to the State competition, which will be held at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on April 20th.
