Hays CISD Destination Imagination Results!

Hays CISD had three teams participate in Destination Imagination during the 2020-2021 school year.  Schools represented include Pfluger Elementary School, Chapa Middle School, and Dahlstrom Middle School.  This year, not only did the teams complete the challenges provided by Destination Imagination, they also overcame obstacles due to Covid including practicing and competing virtually.  What a unique learning experience for these students and their team managers. 

Two teams advanced to the State tournament with one team advancing to the Global competition which will take place virtually this summer.  Below is information regarding the teams and competitions.

The Bluebirds from Pfluger placed fourth in the technical challenge at the Capital Region tournament.  They advanced to the Lone Star Finals where they placed seventh.  Team members include Jeffrey Olaes, Luis Sevilla, Daniel Duffy, Carlos De La Cruz, Josue De La Cruz, Sofia Niemie, and Drew Smith.  The team managers are Jackie Bittner and Rhowella Olaes.

The American Stars from Dahlstrom placed first in the improvisational challenge at the Capital Region tournament.  They advanced to the Lone Star Finals where they placed fourth.  They will compete at the Global Finals this summer.
