Overall, OHS attended four different categories which are, Fish and Wildlife, Small animal, and Horse. The fourth category being extemporaneous speaking done by Angela Edel. Each category competed against roughly 60 other teams. Small animals received a silver medal placing 24th. Fish and wildlife landing 35th also obtaining a silver medal. Horse placed an outstanding 12th earning a gold medal with Megan Andrist 5th overall individually out of over 200 other competitors. Elizabeth Tingalia said, “Fifth place in horse judging at the State Competition is fantastic. Megan Andrist worked very hard to prepare and did well in her contest.” This is an outstanding accomplishment, but at the end of the year the team is losing two members. Horse competitor, Emily Dahlin, said, “The team did great, but we’re looking for two new members to replace Megan Andrist and I for when we graduate.” This means students interested should go and speak to Mrs. Tingalia in room V-103 about signing up for next year.
