The 2015 Bay Scallop Bowl, held on February 7th, 2015, was won by the team from Mt. Sinai High School, a perennial powerhouse at this event. They will now begin to prepare for the 2015 National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) finals, which take place in Ocean Springs, Mississippi in late April. Great Neck South High School came in second and the “A” team from Midwood High School (Brooklyn, right by Brooklyn College) was third. For both Great Neck and Midwood, this was their highest finish ever.
Kim Knoll and Bill Wise want to send their sincere appreciation to the large SoMAS contingent among the 2015 BayScallop Bowl volunteers for all their efforts to make this bowl so successful, especially Mala Masson, who coordinated the volunteers.
The competition went forward with nary a hitch and “Wolfie” even put in an appearance at lunchtime. Frank Roethel had suggested we invite him.
Kim Knoll and Bill Wise traveled with the Mt. Sinai team to the Gulf Coast Research Center for the National Ocean Sciences Bowl held on April 23-26. Check out the Bay Scallop Bowl page to read about the event!
