"I am so proud of how hard these students worked to have the success that they did in this event. It is a tough competition and they did very well,” said MSHS Sports Medicine teacher, Robin Backstrom LAT ATC. “I am also extremely happy that Emily will be on the WCTSMA Board and can't wait to see her contributions to our association in the next year!"
Five MSHS students also competed in the new Anatomage competition, although didn't make it into the final rounds.
Anatomage is the company that makes the super cool computerized table you see in the picture in which an anatomical figure
is displayed. Students competing in that special area had to identify different muscles, ligaments and bones that appeared via the table.
