Previous Placings

7th Grade (2013-2014)

During her first year in Science Olympiad, SOnerd only consistently competed in 2 events, Entomology and Experimental Design. Her experiences in Entomology taught her a great deal about making effective cheatsheets, and she continued to compete in Experimental Design up through her junior season.

Entomology 4th 12th 2nd 2nd 1st 20th
Experimental Design N/A N/A 3rd 2nd 2nd 46th

8th Grade (2014-2015)

As one of the older members of her team, SOnerd took on more events in 8th grade. She tried Dynamic Planet, Disease Detectives, and Fossils for the first time, and she was able to apply the general skills she had learned in Entomology in 7th grade to these new events.

9th Grade (2015-2016)

SOnerd did not participate in Science Olympiad in 9th Grade because her high school did not yet have a team and her middle school does not allow 9th graders to compete. Lyk if u cri evrytim.

10th Grade (2016-2017)

10th Grade was a pivotal year for SOnerd, as she started the team at Blue Valley North High School. She greatly enjoyed the opportunity to compete in Science Olympiad again after having thought her career would end after 8th grade, and she learned a great deal from leading the team.

11th Grade (2017-2018)

With the re-birth of 2 new Division C invitationals in the Kansas City Area (ThunderKat Klash and Pembroke Hill) this year, SOnerd and her team were able to gain more practice in their events. SOnerd implemented new ways of leading her team, and she picked up one new event: Herpetology.

12th Grade (2018-2019)

SOnerd struggled to find a consistent 5th event throughout her senior season, but she ended up picking up Astronomy, which she enjoyed.
