The Martha's Vineyard Regional High School's 16th Annual Linguini Bridge Contest in the Performing Arts Center Monday was a shattering experience. Freshmen Connor Downing (left) and Anders Nelson placed a total of 945 pounds on their pasta bridge before it crushed under the weight. "London Bridge, Take Two!" built by Ben Davey and Mya Houston captured first place in the all-freshmen competition by withstanding 990 pounds of weight. The competition began at 7:45 am this morning with 65 bridges. During the competition, weights were added until a bridge failed. The competition continued with snaps, crackles and crashes, and ended about 11 am.
