CES Places 1st at Odyssey of the Mind

Congratulations to Catskill Elementary School’s Odyssey of the Mind team! The team placed first in their division at the Region 4 Odyssey of the Mind tournament, held March 9 at Coxsackie-Athens CSD, and now advance to the State tournament at Binghamton University on March 23rd!

In their competition problem, “Opposites Distract,” the team became the four seasons lead by Mother Nature and Mother Peace, and performed a skit where two groups had a silly argument while a shifty character attempted to disrupt things.

The team is students Teegan Morehead, Ben Mahoney, Charlie Goodell, Sophia Blauberg, Korben Raffo, Kendra Tedford, and Gabby Amato with advisors Dierdra Van Loan and Marguerite Mahoney. They had been preparing since November, meeting after school two times a week. Hold that trophy high!
