Co-Captain of Kraemer Middle School Science Olympiad 2018-19
|Number of years competing||1.5|
|Invitational Trial Event Medals||2|
|State Trial Event Medals||2|
Umaroth joined scioly in the middle of the 2018 season when he was asked to do a trial event at Mira Loma Invitational (NorCal). After the invitational, he became interested in Fast Facts and fell in love with it, later placing 1st at Kraemer Invitational. Afterwards, he also picked up Solar System, while continuing to work on trial events, which he deemed more fun to compete in than actual events.
After all the ninth graders left for various reasons, just two of us were left to be captains. Umaroth originally chose Battery Buggy, Solar System, and Circuit Lab, and was assigned Game On, but after some careful consideration, he chose to trade in Game On for Dynamic Planet and Meteorology. This ended up working well for him because Game On was replaced by Codebusters in SoCal, and he had competed in Codebusters as a trial event at states the previous year. Throughout the year, he had also worked on Roller Coaster, but had realized that he was a bad luck charm, with them getting a failed run whenever he was nearby.
For the 2020 season, Umaroth will be moving on to Division C, where he hopes to make the team at Troy High School

Kids behind me in DP at Mesa-Wilson Invitational see my pencil case filled with 26 sharpened Ticonderoga pencils
Kid 1: Why do you have so many pencils?
Me: I'm in Codebusters, so I have to constantly be writing and need sharp pencils to stay neat
Kid 2: Why not use a mechanical pencil?
Me: Mechanical pencils require you to reload lead and the internal mechanism is prone to breaking
Kid 2: This is why Kraemer wins so much
Kid 1: Because they have a lot of pencils?
