Osseo OEC (Opportunities in Emergency Care) students had a strong showing at the 28th annual Emergency Care State competition Saturday, Feb. 22, at Spring Lake Park High School.
Osseo sent 17 teams consisting of students from Osseo, Maple Grove, Park Center, Wayzata and Buffalo high schools. The competition challenged students academically and physically through a series of well-controlled accident scenarios. There were simulated cardiac emergencies, a rescue from a swimming pool, electrocution, impaled object and rescue of a fire fighter.
Osseo’s top team, The Incredibles, consisted of student: Lexi Poncin, Alex Winkelman, DeAngelo Wallman and Jake Lenz. The team took fourth place overall at the state competition.
Osseo also took honors with its Most Professional Team, with students: Kaitlynn Arbogast, Hannah Paulson and Marie Gaddis.
