GODFREY – Brandon Lawrence, a junior at East Alton-Wood River High School, watches as his  trebuchet pitches a ball forward toward a bucket during Friday's Fifth Annual Lewis and Clark Community College Trebuchet Contest in the River Bend Arena. More than 200 area high school students participated in teams as they tested their ingenuity in design and working knowledge of physics as they designed, built and competed with the trebuchets.
