Hopkinton DI teams excelled once again at the MA State tournament held at WPI on 3/29. This year, two Hopkinton teams grabbed 1st place and will now advance to the DI Global Tournament, to be held in Knoxville, TN, May 21-24, where they will compete with more than 1300 teams from around the globe! They make our community and schools proud! It is particularly noteworthy that both these teams chose a challenge that involves community service and outreach.

We'd like to wish them the very best for the Global tournament.
