Lavarball is a senior at Cumberland Valley High School and a proud alumni of Eagle View Middle School. The 2020 Season will be his 7th and final year of competing in Pennsylvania, and has been an integral part of his team's drastic improvement throughout his Science Olympiad career. He is the most op builder SciOly has ever seen¹ and loves to work on builds all day every day. Does not sleep at night in the summer because he picked up Boomilever and Ping Pong Parachute(vehicle events are particularly his favorite).

Lavarball is extremely salty that he got unfairly tiered at the 2017 Little Tiger Invitational in Scrambler because he should have beaten sciolyperson1. He will attempt to beat him in Gravity Vehicle at the 2020 Div C Long Island Invitational. However, he did not beat him :( so he will attempt to beat him in Gravity Vehicle at the 2020 Div C Connie (apparently its "stoga" but ew no and its definetly not bavf) Invitational. Yeah he will never beat him.
