 Titan Tribute:   Today’s Titan Tribute is to 10th grader Elizabeth Roane. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people are overcome by a type of madness – March Madness. No, we are not talking about basketball, but instead March Mammal Madness. In March Mammal Madness, scientists and students create brackets for fictional battles between animals, where they debate on who would win in a fight, making it an exciting blend of science, strategy, and imagination. This year the high school biology students at International competed to see who could create the best bracket. Elizabeth Roane beat out her competitors with fierce determination and skill, emerging as the apex predator of the tournament. Congratulations, Elizabeth!
