The Westview Jr. High Soils teams placed first and second in the 11-county Area XI Soils Contest held near Stroh. The team was coached by FFA Advisor Paul Baker.
Marcus Troyer was the overall individual champion for the contest. The contest requires students to determine the physical properties of the soil and then select the best agricultural and homesite practices for that soil.
The teams have now qualified for the state contest to be held on Oct. 20 in Batesville, Ind.
