On Tuesday, March 25th two teams from Cowles Montessori school advanced to the semi-final and final rounds of the State Middle School B.O.B. competition held at Simpson College. There were a total of 76 teams that participated in the program with 12 teams advancing on to the semi-final/final rounds of the competition.
