Conners Emerson Mathletes shone at Saturday's Chapter Level MathCounts Competition.
The official team of four (Annie, Alden, Taki, and Zachary) came in 1st place. In addition four students placed in the top ten: Annie, Alden, Taki, and Yash.
Taki placed 1st during the written rounds of the competition, but in an exciting countdown round, he had to battle it out with Yash. All of us sat on the edge of our seats. Ultimately, Yash was the first to answer three problems correctly, and he moved into the top position. It was very exciting for all of us to watch two classmates match skills against one another, in a great show of math mastery and good sportsmanship.
Eight team members will move onto the state level of competition in two weeks.
- Many thanks to our volunteer co-coach, Dawn Burgess, for all the help she gives the team!
