Orioles magic captured Perry Hall Elementary School last week, and it paid off.
From among more than 30 Maryland schools, Perry Hall earned second place in the team-sponsored "Go Orange" Challenge, the official Orioles website announced. St. Philip Neri School in Linthicum gained first, and Halstead Academy of Science and the Arts in Parkville took third.
Participants decorated the inside and outside of schools "with an Orioles look" and dressed in orange and Orioles gear. Each school submitted a photo and summary to the team, according to the website.
The website features a photo of Perry Hall here.
The Oriole Bird is expected to visit the school in celebration of second place, and in April 2013, the entire student body will receive free tickets to a home game.
