Isabella Gulledge also won second place in state competition for T-shirt design, and Griffin Turner, John Robert Dixon, as well as Tammy Wilkes won second place in the state “Book Battle.”

The team had to build a tower out of straws and tape within a certain time frame, with an allotted amount of straws. When complete, the tower must hold a tennis ball up for 60 seconds.
