Liberty Ranch High School's Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Team recently competed against teams from 11 other local schools in a design contest.

Held at Granite Bay High School, team members had to design an iconic monument for Sacramento with a budget of $45 million. In this process, they had to take into account the architectural, engineering, and construction considerations needed to make the project viable, according to adviser Sean Duncan.

"What's even more amazing is they did this as the only school in the competition without an engineering program and short two mentors," Principal Brian Deis said in an email.

At last Friday's awards banquet, team members learned they won Best Construction Approach for their design, but barely missed Best Overall Design by Team Cordova. Also at the banquet, student Austin Lemire-Baeten won an ACE scholarship for $2,250 — the largest award given out that night— and Chris McCoy received the Leadership Award.

Other team members who presented include Zach Gong, Osmara Siordia, James Roman, Faith Lemire-Baeten, Will Applegate, Jeremy Nottnagel and Ricardo Ramos

Other participating team members were Jesus Sanchez, Sam Collier, Anthony Tiapon, Stephen Gimpel, Spencer Carter and Steven Garcia.

Ross Daley created the plaster sculpture of the design.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
