Albany - Two students beat out thousands of their peers in a national competition. Westover High School students Lara Berg and Tim Dusterdieck won first place in various categories of the Skills USA national competition in Missouri.

Berg earned top honors for her prepared speech, and Dusterdieck won the math competition. They won state and regional competitions to make it to nationals.

"The test I took had 50 mathematical word problems," said Dusterdieck. "We had 2 hours to finish the test, and I answered the most questions correctly."

"I prepared a 5 to 7 minutes speech on a given topic relating to the steps to success. I was judged on my writing, my speaking abilities, and my appearance," said Berg.

Berg was also elected Vice President of this region's Skills USA program. Dusterdieck plans to attend Georgia Tech in the fall.
