During the event, RBR senior Elisa Orsini (Shrewsbury) placed second in Flight Endurance, and junior Jose Ramirez (Red Bank) placed third in Transportation modeling. The other students who represented RBR were Jorge Benavides (Red Bank), Erick Camerino (Red Bank), Edwin Castillo (Red Bank), Javier Molina (Deal), Vincent Novellino (Millstone) and Ricky Wild (Belmar).

The Battle of the Class Sandwiches has been decided — and the winner of the special fundraising competition, sponsored by the Red Bank Regional High School District and Sickles Market, is the Junior Class.
It was a hard-fought but decisive win for the RBR Juniors, with their top-selling sandwich creation, “The Fiesta ’15,” topping the sales sweepstakes with 502 sandwiches sold. The winning sandwich is described as“Savory grilled chicken and Monterey Jack cheese paired with an explosion of southwestern flavors including fresh avocado, Sickles’ Own black bean salsa and a kick of chipotle ranch dressing, all rolled up into a sundried tomato wrap.”
The announcement of the winner was made at a congratulatory luncheon at RBR on Monday, June 16. The Senior Class 2014 placed second with “The Wild Buc” (429 sold); the Sophomore Class of 2016 placed third with “The Sweet ’16” (370 sold) and the Freshmen Class of 2017 finished fourth with “The Savory ‘17” (238 sold).
