PIKEVILLE – Betsy Layne High School claimed another Regional Science Olympiad championship on Saturday.
Floyd County Schools Superintendent Dr. Henry Webb congratulated the local students and coaches for their performances at the Regional Science Olympiad competition held at the University of Pikeville over the weekend.
“Congratulations Betsy Layne High School and Coach Brandon Pascarella,” said Webb. “Once again, Betsy Layne won the regional Science Olympiad competition. “The board team and I also want to congratulate Prestonsburg High School and Coach Kenneth Bradley and South Floyd Middle and Coach Karen Miles. From PHS, Team Alpha placed third and Team Omega placed fourth and South Floyd Middle placed third. All four teams are advancing to state. Kaylie Edwards and Breanna Little from South Floyd High, coached by Candace Slone, placed first in their category, Rocks and Minerals. We’re very proud of our students and coaches and wish them the best of luck at state!
“We’ve had great success in Floyd County Schools and it’s because of our kids, our community and our team. In the past month, we’ve had middle and high school students qualify for state competition in academics, dance, archery, wrestling, vocational, poetry and now Science Olympiad. And that’s just the last month. We hope our families and community members know that we appreciate their support because they help make all this happen. Together, we are making sure that our kids can compete with anyone in anything at any level!”
