The Wilson County 4-H Entomology team competed at the 4-H State Roundup held at Texas A&M University in College Station on June 12. The team included Austin Akin, Gage Bush, Ethan Campos, and Adlai Welfel.

The contest was comprised of an identification of 50 Texas insects by name and order, and a written test portion of 100 questions. They competed against many teams and individuals from across the state and came out as victors. They won first place as a team, with Austin Akin taking second place individual high point, and Ethan Campos winning third place individual high point. Their coach, Jenna Cotter, is very proud of their team and commends her students’ hard work and dedication, studying, and learning all year long. She also wishes to thank their families for all their support.

Wilson County Entomol-ogy holds a true legacy and winning tradition that has been passed down, started by the late Verna Cordes of Floresville, who then handed it over to her daughter, Laurie Curtis. Together, they had numerous teams and individuals win at state over decades. Jenna Cotter took over as the entomology advisor two years ago, when Laurie retired. Jenna was coached by Laurie and was on the 2001 state-winning Entomology Team.

We hope to keep the tradition alive and congratulations to Austin, Gage, Ethan, and Adlai!
