The Belfast Area High School ocean sciences bowl team competed in the Nor'easter Bowl regional competition of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl on Sat. Feb. 1 at the University of New Hampshire. Belfast was one of eight schools represented. Students answered questions in 8 subject areas regarding marine sciences. Belfast brought two teams made up of Grace Bagley, Allison Martell, Doug Wich, Aidan Ripley, Romy Carpenter, Leah Taylor, Ashley Flanders, and Alexis Racioppi. Both teams earned a seed in the double-elimination tournament after playing 4 rounds in the morning. The teams were awarded prize field trips for a "Behind the Scenes" tour at the New England aquarium in Boston and a sampling expedition aboard a Maine Maritime Academy research boat. Congratulations to both teams!
