On Friday, Oct. 11 at the Silver Bay Marina, physics students from William Kelley High School raced their cardboard and glue boats on Lake Superior. Zach Duresky, Abby Michels and Chad Smuk were the race winners in the first ever double-decker boat. Jonah Koehler and Lucas Small were a close second in their cardboard model of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Both boats easily made the first round but had a little more trouble in round two as the Yellow Submarine added Abby Michels to the top deck and the "Fitz" picked up passenger Mitchell Blomberg.
