When it comes to academics, creativity and skill at Holley-Navarre Intermediate School, great minds think alike.

Fourteen fifth and sixth-grade students from HNIS competed - and won - at the Odyssey of the Mind competition in Fort Walton Beach on Feb. 27.

Though it was the team's first year competing, sponsor Linda Matthews said she never doubted their ability - but she was realistic about their chances for success.
