A team from Boise High School has become the first landlocked group to win the National Oceanic Science Bowl.

The team members are sophomores Nate Marshall, Karthik Mouli and Benjamin Huang, and junior Eric Huang.

Boise High’s win marked the first time a school that was not from a coastal or Great Lakes state won the final competition since it began 17 years ago.

The competition, held in Seattle on May 1-4, is part of the Washington, D.C.-based Consortium for Ocean Leadership, which promotes ocean research research.

Boise High was one of 22 schools competing in the national finals.
