MHS Odyssey Team Captures Regional Championship


On Saturday, March 13, the McConnellsburg Odyssey of the Mind team traveled to Millersville University to compete in the regional competition. Beginning in October, the team was challenged to write a script where a food was accused of being unhealthy and must defend itself among its food peers. Included in the challenge, the team had to build a jury that could render a verdict to the audience. Competing against three other schools in the region, the MHS team was able to win with a 36-point advantage. The team will advance to state level competition in Williamsport, on Saturday, April 10. Pictured above, from left to right, are Kylie Zittle, Andrew Smith, Nick McClure, Brandi Welsh and Bryan Guyer.
