Fifteen students in the Genesis Program at Xaverian H.S., Bay Ridge, competed in the Science Olympiad at Grover Cleveland High School, Ridgewood.
The students were coached by faculty members Robert Procida, ’03, and James Schreiner, ’04. The Genesis Team placed in the top five in four separate categories: Meteorology, Storm the Castle, Dynamic Planet and Rocks & Minerals. They were also awarded a trophy for Best New Team.
“The whole day was a great success,” said Procida, “and our students represented our school with a bang!”
