All hail the Grand Battery.


Centennial qualified again for the 2017 Wright State National Tournament. They placed 36th overall, and placed 4th for Chemistry Lab.


Centennial placed 1st at states and qualified for Nationals at Colorado State University. Overall, they placed 29th and--our proudest achievement--9th in Codebusters.

To our coach's eternal suffering, the majority of the team became flat earthers this year #FLATEARTHTRUTH


Centennial placed 1st at the state tournament and qualified for the 2019 Cornell National Tournament. Thanks to our fierce competitors River Hill and Richard Montgomery for keeping us on our toes this year! Our goal this year is to beat our school's best placement of 19th place! As a means to preserve continuity, the team placed the same as the previous year- 29th but this time with a 1st place in a Trial event.


Centennial High School placed 3rd at Fairfax Invitational. We placed 2nd at our regionals but our State Tournament was canceled due to COVID :(


Our virtual year starts with a new generation of members (all of whom have never seen a states tournament before). Despite the trials of virtual tournaments and online meetings, our teams form a stronger community than ever. Throughout the year we go on to notably place 9th at the Princeton Invitational (tied with our highest placement from 2019). Later on, we went on to place 2nd at our regional tournament and win 1st at the state tournament, qualifying for the 2021 Arizona State University National Tournament! Big thanks to River Hill for competing with us this year! We end off our socially-distanced year in the pandemic strong placing 26th overall and 2nd place in Write it CAD it at nationals.


The teams at Centennial were excited to be back in-person until our invitationals were changed back to remote/satellite due to COVID. In our satellite tournaments, we placed 7th in the Cornell Satellite Division, 9th at the Princeton invitational, 18th at the 6th Penn Invitational. With our team stronger than ever, we win 1st at our regionals tournament for the first time in 3 years and continue to win 1st at the Maryland State Tournament. (Nats info coming soon ;)
