Two teams from St. John's Academy's Middle School competed in the North Dakota Cyber Madness State Tournament on Nov. 18. After placing first and second in regional competition, one St. John's Academy team earned third and the other team earned eighth in the state competition.

Another bill would direct schools not to deny students meals, not take away food, not stigmatize students and not limit a student’s participation in activities because of meal debt.

Cyber Club team members receiving third place were Tyler Bucton, Jack Bollinger, Kenny Dobson and Joe Trumbauer. Team members who received eighth place were Abby Ament, Larkin Kleven, Luke Monson and Henry Wolff.

This is the first year of competition for SJA’s Cyber Club teams, which are coached by the Academy’s science and STEM teacher Lindsey Cramer.

“I am really happy that we were able to provide this opportunity for our students," Cramer said. "They worked incredibly hard and represented the Academy and our values exceptionally. I’m very proud of their effort and performance.”

"Extracurricular activities like our Cyber Club are a valuable component to the education process for students," said Jeff Trumbauer, principal of St. John's Academy. "The Cyber Madness tournament provides a great opportunity for students who are interested in technology to develop and showcase their skills. I foresee that the Cyber Club will become a mainstay as one of our extracurricular offerings.”


Horizon Middle School won the tournament, which included 11 finalist teams.

The ND Cyber Madness middle and high school tournaments are friendly competitions to get students involved in cybersecurity. Second place went to Fairmount Public School. The winning teams will be awarded scholarships to the college of their choice.
