The 2014 meet was the largest in MISD history, with over 500 participants from 11 Intermediate and Middle Schools from across the district. For the third consecutive year, the overall winning teams came from Mary Orr Intermediate and Danny Jones Middle School. Congratulations to all of the hardworking students who participated in the competition!
