Mercer Island’s Destination ImagiNation teams perform well at state

The Mercer Island School District’s Destination ImagiNation teams competed in the state tournament last week in Wenatchee.

The “Six Musketeers” from West Mercer’s structural team took first place, while “The Leonardo Da Vinci Flaming Tacos”, also from West Mercer, were second place, as were “The Mythical VII”, Islander Middle School’s structural team.

The Six Musketeers and Mythical VII will represent the Island in the global finals at the end of May in Knoxville, Tenn.

“I am so proud of these students for demonstrating so much creativity, inventiveness and hard work! I would also like to thank their coach and teacher Mark Headlee, and their parents for encouraging our students’ participation in Destination ImagiNation,” said Superintendent Gary Plano.
