The Damien Memorial School rocketry team finished 19th out of 101 teams in the prestigious Team American Rocketry Challenge in Plains, Virginia. The newly formed team, led by adviser Jacob Hudson, will meet with Governor Neil Abercrombie at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. Damien Memorial was the first Hawaii team to qualify for the national competition in seven years. Qualifying is tough...the team had to launch a rocket as close to 825 feet as possible and bring down two payloads of eggs within 48 to 50 seconds.
