A group of Temecula students has tasted success at regional and state competitions for the Odyssey of the Mind problem-solving contest.

Students at Abby Reinke Elementary School in Temecula recently finished second at the regional contest and took fifth place at a state tournament. The team was the only Southern California school to rank in the top 5 for their problem, according to a news release from the team. Sixteen teams from across the state competed in the team's division and problem.
