Earlier this month, a group of Lincoln-Sudbury students showed off their smarts during the Blue Lobster Bowl at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The National Ocean Sciences Team from LSRHS sent two teams to the competition, which is the state's regional Marine Science Quiz Bowl. The Lincoln-Sudbury "A" Team snagged second place overall out of the 24 teams at the event while the "B" Team ended the day in in seventh place.

The Blue Lobster Bowl is one of 25 events that make up the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) competition.

Throughout the all-day competition, the high school students are quizzed on their knowledge of ocean science subjects, according to the school. The topics covered include chemistry, biology, engineering, history, ecology, climate change, and weather.   

A total of 2,000 students from more than 300 schools participate nationally in the NOSB, which was created in 1998.

The members of the Lincoln-Sudbury National Ocean Sciences Team are Emily Busch, Grace Catlabiano, Greg Drecho, captain Peter Finnegan, Michael Dawson, Alex Ghorishi, Greg Howard, Nick Jowkar and captain Erin Qin. The team advisor is Science Teacher B.J. Pegram.
