Ostrander's Science Bowl Bio (written by the Science Bowl team): Mr. Peter Ostrander is the magnet coordinator of Montgomery Blair High School, which he rules with a titanium fist. He is best known for his thorough understanding of the nature of school politics, the high school student psyche, and 80’s and 90’s bands, although his favorite musician is Justin Bieber, for his profound lyrics and masterful melodies. Science bowl is very pleased to welcome him as a member of the current regime. He fulfills his role as assistant head coach almost as well our head coach. He is a constant presence at science bowl practices and you can hardly walk into a meet without feeling his aura. In his free time, Mr. Ostrander enjoys surfing.

Cathy: No. After a pine cone fell on my head from a tree when I was little, I was done with pine cones for the rest of my life. Sam: Did you make any genius discoveries after that?
