HL HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE ENVIROTHON
The Hadley Luzerne Envirothon team took 6th place in the Warren County Envirothon competition during the last week of April. The competition, held each year at the Warren County Fish Hatchery in Warrensburg, challenges teams of high school students to answer questions on Forestry, Wildlife, Soils, Aquatics and a special topic. This year’s special topic was Rangelands since the national competition will be held in July in Montana. On the individual tests, the HL team scored 2nd in Aquatics and 3rd in Rangeland. There were a total of 18 teams competing. With only one graduating senior, the Hadley Luzerne Envirothon team is already planning for next year. With five seniors next year, the drive to win at the county level and go to the State competition will be huge. Hadley Luzerne last won the county competition in 2008 and placed 17th at the State competition at SUNY-Cobleskill.
