TARC Team Qualifies for Nationals!

For the first time, three teams will be representing the Rocket City at the 2011 TARC Finals in Virginia, May 14. Madison Academy, Covenant Christian Academy and Williams Middle School have been invited to come fly for the money as they have scored national level points with their qualification flights and are ranked in the top one hundred teams. All these schools flew and qualified in 2010 but their scores then were only fair. The only other Alabama team in the finals from the 21 registered in the state is from Trussville. TARC is the Team America Rocketry Challenge and I am so excited! Congratulations to Mrs. Nye and the team. The team needs sponsors to help us get to Nationals. Please email me at abwilliams@hsv.k12.al.us if you or your company would like to sponsor our team. Go Hawks!!!!
