Three alternates placed at the competition in April that took place in San Marcos.
Three Frenship Middle School students — Aya Soler (eighth grade), Hayden Cashman (sixth grade) and Kalea Flores (seventh grade) — competed as alternates in the Future Problem Solvers State Bowl competition in San Marcos earlier in April, placing first or second in the competition.
The competition’s topic was “Identity Theft,” in which students were presented with problems that could occur and would have to work as a team to solve the problem.
Students from all over the state attended the competition in hopes of advancing to the next competition.
Soler, Cashman and Flores placed in two different divisions, including:
- Soler – Middle division (second place)
- Cashman – Junior division (first place)
- Flores – Middle division (first place)
Frenship Middle School took a total of four teams to the State Bowl competition, including three Middle division teams and one Junior division team.
Congratulations to each student who competed in the competition!
