The University of Cincinnati regional Math Counts competition was held on Saturday February 22. Wyoming placed a respectable 7th out of 41 teams. Joel Englehardt led the team and both he and Ken Chen are headed to the State Competition this Saturday March 8th in Columbus. Our # 1 team was made up of Ken, Joel, Christian Robles, and Grace Hitt. We have a great group of 7th and 6th graders and are expecting another great showing next year.
In January, the Wyoming Middle School MathCounts team traveled to Cincinnati Country Day for a Mini MathCounts competition. Out of over 20 teams we placed 4th. Ken Chen lead our team and made it to the countdown round. In February, Wyoming took three teams to St. Margaret of York. The top Wyoming team placed 3rd out of 28 teams, and again Ken made it to the countdown round. Other team members included Radu Pavel, Grant Mellott, Walker Weekley, Anya Stiefbold, Lauren Rutherford, Isabella Getgey, Ambar Alvarez- Garcia, Emma Jacquemin, and Lindsay Sasson.
Last Saturday, the Wyoming Math Team participated in the U. C. Math Bowl. Our Algebra 1 team of Catherine Miller, Chelsea Lee, and Walker Weekly received a Superior rating.
Our final contest will be Saturday, April 12 at Lakota in the Cincinnati Council of Teachers of Mathematics Contest. We have had a very successful season. Good luck to Joel and Ken this weekend in Columbus and thanks to all of the team members who all helped to make this a great year for MathCounts.
