This year's two-member made up for that.
Kyle Phipps and Wyatt Kudia compiled a total of 503.5 points in the March 18 contest to take first place in the team competition, outscoring second-place Lampeter-Strasburg by more than 200 points.
Phipps came in first in the individual competition with 262 points, followed by Kudia in second place with 241.5 points.
"Solanco's boys gave the rest of the teams a good old Mule kick and clobbered the field," said Carey Kalupson, Solanco's lead ag teacher. "Of course I'm proud. This is the first team in years that has lived up to my expectations."
