Five Marshfield High School students competed in the Lake Sturgeon Bowl Regional of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl at the University of Milwaukee on February 2.

“The team went undefeated in their pool to advance to the double elimination championship bracket, where they lost in the finals to a strong LaDue Horton Watkins High School from Missouri,” said coach Paul Herder.

Last year, Marshfield narrowly defeated the same high school in the regional finals last year to advance to the national finals in Washington D.C., where they placed third.

Team members included Suhaas Bhat (12), Tara Bhat (10), Niki Gonugunta (12), Carter Chojnacki (12), and Jasen Kracht (12).
