Wagner Ranch Places First in Odyssey of the Mind

By Staff

The fifth grade team at Wagner Ranch Elementary rose to the challenge amidst a pandemic year and placed first in their division at the Odyssey of the Mind SF Bay Regional Competition, held in a virtual tournament Feb. 27. Odyssey of the Mind is a world-renowned program where students learn how to problem-solve, create, design and think outside of the box as a team. The team’s coach, Leslie Volk (who also heads the Innovation Lab at Wagner Ranch), has led members Raunav Agarwal, Bryce Batiuchok, Maya Elkind, Sadie Elkind, Bryce Gordon, Davis Gordon and Brian Volk for the past three years. These Wagner Ranch OMers are looking forward to the NorCal State competition and hope to advance to the World finals in June.
