    There is an error in this post “the 2016-2017 Black Team will be competing in the National Science Olympiad competition for the first time in UHS history,” this is not the first time that the UHS Science Olympiad Team is attending the National Competition, they did so back in the 2006-2007 School Year, and a few times before that if I am correct.
