Waubonsie Valley High School is a Division C school in Aurora, Illinois.
After two consecutive seasons as the alternate for state (one spot away from qualifying), the team finally broke through in 2012-2013, finishing 5th in regionals, beating rival school Neuqua, and qualified for state. The team had grown from barely fielding a varsity team to having two JVs too. With a new co-coach and returning leadership, the team was headed in the right direction. Team Award: Crystal Lake Central Spirit Award. The season ended with three medals (two normal events, one trial event) at State vs. the big dogs (AA), as Science Olympiad decided that since Waubonsie had beaten a top 10 school from the previous year (Neuqua), the team would be strong enough to compete in the powerhouse AA division . In 2013-2014, the team has further grown, with nearly 80 bright students and strong leadership and coaches.
