The West Babylon Senior High School Science Olympiad team attended the New York State competition at Kellenberg High School in Uniondale, bringing home two bronze medals and placing 23rd out of 51 schools.
Greg Fleury and John Martin were the bronze medal winners in the Magnetic
Levitation activity, and Nicole Cutrone and Amber Volz received a bronze medal
