Mt. Ararat High School is headed to the SeaPerch national championship for the fourth year in a row after a strong showing at the state competition at Bath Area Family YMCA this past Saturday.

Mt. Ararat entered three teams of three students into the competition, which required students to build and test aquatic robots over a period of four months and then match them up against other schools in a series of obstacle courses. Each team finished in the top three out of 18 registered high schools.

The first place team featured seniors Ryan Renthi, Ian Scanlon and Gage Palmer, and was coached by Mt. Ararat science teacher Glenn Evans. The same team reached the nationals last year, where they finished 11th out of 75 teams.

The SeaPerch nationals take place on May 20 in Atlanta, Georgia.
