TOWSON, Md. - A North Hagerstown High School team finished fourth in its division on Saturday at the state Destination Imagination tournament at Towson University.

North High competed in the "Round About Courage" category. Students had to tell a story of a heroic adventure in the style of theater-in-the-round, Dan Henderson, the Western Maryland regional director of Destination Imagination, said during a telephone interview.

North High was fourth among high schools in that category, he said.

A Washington County team called Dynamic Imagineers finished sixth in the middle-school division of "Round About Courage," Henderson said. The students came from schools across the county.

Neither team qualified for the global finals in May in Knoxville, Tenn.

The Destination Imagination program builds "creative and critical thinking, teamwork, time management and problem solving," according to its Web site.

Ten other Washington County teams competed at the state tournament on Saturday:

·Lincolnshire Elementary School and Northern Middle School in "CSI: DI"
