School Mathletes Take First in State

posted Mar 9, 2014, 5:00 AM by Sarah Winne

Congratulations to Carolyn, Yash, Emerson, and Taki who took the top team score at the State MathCounts Competition on Saturday.  The team score is compiled as an average of their individual scores plus the team round score. 

In addition a special congratulations is due to Yash and Taki. Yash was the state champion this year, outscoring all his competitors on the countdown round, where math problems need to be answered in 45 seconds!  Taki also scored in the top four at states, with the second highest individual score on the written portion of the competition.  Yash and Taki, along with their coach, Ms. Winne, will be traveling to the National Competition at Disney World in Orlando, Florida in early May.  This is an all expenses paid trip.

The team would like to give special thanks to two additional coaches who helped them train for this competition over the past five weeks: Joel Graber and Lindsay Shopland. Many Thanks!
