Riverhead, NY, June 2013 – On Tuesday, June 18th, Legislator Sarah Anker recognized the Mount Sinai High School Ocean Bowl team at the General Meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature. The team won the New York Regional Bay Scallop Bowl held on Feb. 16 at Stony Brook University.

“I’d like to congratulate the Mount Sinai Ocean Bowl team on its achievement,” said Legislator Anker. “The students have demonstrated their knowledge and have shown an understanding and appreciation for the marine environment which is so important for the future of our island and its waters.”

Mount Sinai High School was one of 16 teams that participated in the competition, which consisted of fast-paced questions and answers concerning the marine environment. The Bay Scallop Bowl is part of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB), a program of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership based in Washington, D.C.
