A team of high school students from Sandy Creek won first place against eight other school districts at the recent Oswego County Academic Youth (OCAY) League competition.

Skylar Clark, Hannah White, Perle Convey, Sophie Harris, Daltyn Landas, Mason Ennist, Maddox Palmer, Trevor McDougal, Alex Caufield and Simon Preston were selected by their advisor Christina Hunt to represent the school district.

The second competition of the school year was titled "In Our Classical Era" and was held on November 15 at the DEC Training Facility in Pulaski.

Students had to construct a working aqueduct to transport water, turn a classic painting into a sculpture, memorize and recite a classic poem and take a series of quizzes related to the theme.

The competition was judged by Linda Knowles, former OCAY League coach and retired English and art teacher from CiTi BOCES and SUNY Oswego.

OCAY League was founded on the premise of academic excellence through the competition of schools in Oswego County. Teams are made up of eight to ten members and compete in several events throughout the school year, with the next event happening in March.
