This was Pierce's third year competing in Odyssey of the Mind. He had a different team this year, and a different coach. Pierce was the only male on his team, and he was the youngest. Pierce had a really fun team and an excellent coach. The problem they chose was called "Fur, Fins and Feathers" and they did a skit involving animals and emotions. There were 16 teams competing in this category for the Piedmont Regional competition.
Their team took second place! They were so thrilled. The girls were all planning what they would wear on Monday with their medals. Pierce, sadly, doesn't have any skinny jeans, but he did wear his usual jeans with his medal.
