"We feel really blessed because we placed second out of 19 teams," Kayleigh Patterson 17, said. "Only the top two teams get to move on to world."

"I feel really proud," Eileen Brown 17, said. "This year, we are the only team out of our whole region to go to world, and it’s just a huge honor."

However, the team must collect $6,000 by April 26 for the trip to Michigan, Lukas said. Members have planned several fundraisers, including bagging groceries and organizing car washes. The club also seeks sponsorship.

Patterson and Brown, along with OM members Nastya Bateyeba, Elizabeth Lukas, Daniel Thornton and Jaclyn Tipton, returned to Baker this week just in time for the school's open house, where principal Thomas Shipp recognized the accomplishment.

Team members presented their OM skit for faculty, parents and classmates.  

Students were responsible for creating a skit — including writing the script, building the set and designing costumes — in the category"ARTchitecture: The Musical.”  

The skit involved the disappearance and recovery of a historical monument, and included two musical numbers.
