River Hill High School is a Division C school from Clarksville, Maryland, and is part of the Howard County Public School System. River Hill qualified for the 2010 National Competition following their success at the 2010 Maryland Tournament, defeating the previous two-time champion Walter Johnson High School. They placed 29th overall and medaled in 3 events: 2nd place in Environmental Chemistry, 5th place in Mousetrap Vehicle, and 4th place in Trajectory. River Hill has experienced success at the Maryland State Tournament, most recently placing 2nd overall in 2019. River Hill has a long-time rivalry with Centennial High School, and just fell 2nd to them in the 2019 Maryland State Tournament, but are determined to keep fighting in the 2019-2020 season.

2017-2018

In the 2018 season, River Hill experienced moderate success, placing 3rd overall at the Central Maryland Regional Tournament, and going on to place 3rd at the Maryland State Tournament. We did not progress to the Nationals Tournament, much to the dismay of our members. We're determined to turn this dismal performance around in the 2018-2019 season, so watch out, @Centennial High School (Maryland) :)

3rd at Central MD regionals but we beat Resi soooooo...

I ran 2 miles uphill both ways to buy bubble tea for the team while it was raining and got locked out of homeroom

2018-2019

We're currently in the phase of team placement testing, so logistics are in the works for the moment. There's a surprising amount of interest in Science Olympiad at our school, although we did have some difficulties finding a teacher sponsor. Aside from this, we're expected to attend the National Cathedral Invitational in December 2018, and more notably the Princeton Invitational in early 2019. We're hoping to finally defeat our long-time opponent, Centennial High School, at 2019 Maryland States. We'll see you all at Cornell!


Update 12.08.2018:

We've just got back from the National Cathedral Invitational, and we are extremely pleased with our results. Our varsity team earned an overall ranking of 2nd, including gold medals in Protein Modeling, Codebusters, Wright Stuff, Chemistry Lab, and Designer Genes. This is a large improvement from last year, considering that we succeeded against multiple teams that we had previous lost to at the Fairfax Invitational in the 2018 season. We are all very proud of our results as a team, and we will continue to grow through steady improvement and long hours of hard grinding. Our journey to Nationals is looking up, this could possibly be our year!

Update 01.18.2018

Things are looking up! We won 2nd overall out of 60 teams (including state champions and other Nationals contenders) at the Fairfax Invitational, but we trailed 33 points behind our long-time rival and Maryland state champion Centennial High School. We placed in 12 of the 23 events, including 1st place finishes in Anatomy, Circuit Lab, Designer Genes, and Protein Modeling. This is an insane improvement from last year, as we placed 12th overall in the same competition previously. We're looking forward to competing at the Princeton Invitational next month, and face off against some nationally-acclaimed teams. We'll update again after Princeton, and continue on the train of documenting our hard-fought journey to Nationals.
