April 15, 1997|By Vicki Wellford | Vicki Wellford,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

A GROUP of Arundel Middle School students, accompanied by North County High School students, braved cold rains and rough seas recently for a two-hour whale-watching trip off Virginia Beach, Va.

Twenty students from each school, led by Valerie Wesner, toured the Virginia Beach Marine Science Museum and spent 1 1/2 hours on the water before they saw two whales.

The Arundel Middle students were Tiffany Boller, Danielle Cole, Ashley Condict, Stephanie Dalnekoff, Amanda DeVan, Jessica Gouff, Sheila Hagan, Kerra Holtgren, Heather Keim, Jennifer Korvin, Erin Kutsch, Mindy Matanane, Amanda Medford, Heather Palmieri, Jaime Perez, Katrina Ogle, William Salo, Shannon Soper, Beth Vladich and Megan White.

At the museum, the group saw a variety of fish and simulated ocean waves, petted a stingray and got a close look at the native poisonous snakes of Virginia.
