45 St. Mark Catholic School students attended the Regional Odyssey of the Mind Competition this past Saturday. A group of 6 SMCS graduates also attended the competition competing under the St. Mark Catholic Church name in the High School division. St. Mark had their best finish ever with 4 teams taking 1st place, 1 second place finish and 1 third place finish. The top 2 teams in each division advance to the State Tournament on April 6th at East Carolina University-SMCS will be taking 4 teams to State and the SMC Church team advances as well! Good luck to all our teams!
