We are very happy to announce that for the first time in our school's history, our Math Olympiad Team won 1st place as a team in State MathCounts competition. After so many 1st place awards as a team, this is the latest achievement from our wonderful Math Olympiad Team.
Two of our students placed in the Top 10, Holden Watson came 2nd and Charlie Furniss came 5th individually.
The rules for this competition beyond state level are that the Top 4 individuals form Georgia will head on to Nationals with the First placed Team Coach. Therefore, our wonderful Math Olympiad Head Coach Mrs. Sema Duzyol and 7th grader, Holden Watson are heading to Nationals! The national competition will be held in Washington DC on May 7 - 10 2016.
