Trebuchet 2017

Trebuchet has become a time-honored tradition (in the name of physics) at Boyd Buchanan High School. This year, we saw the Murlin’s Witches (team members: Emily Hauke, Bailey Bohannon, and Caitlin Holland) break the record for distance at 140 yards. The record was previously set by “Operation Ewoki Freedom: Shock and Awe” with 127 yards in 2014 (team members: Jacob Gambrell, Brandon Spurling, Caleb Davis, and Daniel Ortega)

Congrats to our 2017 Trebuchet contenders for their hard work, and Mr. Jason Owens who oversees, mentors and guides the students each year. And special thanks to Mr. Bischell for emceeing the event.
