Congratulations to Tom Byrne and his Science Olympiad students


New Rochelle High School, led by Tom Byrne (Class of 2003), is the 2007 Lower Hudson Valley Regional champion in Science Olympiad!  The regional tournament took place on February 10, 2007. A total of 30 teams from Westchester and Rockland competed.  Out of 16 total events, New Rochelle took first place in seven events, and took second place in three events.  The team was led by Talia Weiss, who entered five events (with a partner in each event) and won five gold medals.  It was a remarkable performance.  Nine students won a total of 20 medals.

The team now advances to the state championship tournament at West Point in March for the fifth straight year.
