Math Team Tops in Hancock County
Congratulations to the GSA Math Team!
Of the six students who competed in the fourth meet of the season last week, three finished in the top ten: Syrus Ordway finished No. 3 with 39 points; Khang Nguyen finished No. 6 with 23 points; and Azaiah Nanson finished No. 7 with 21 points.
After last week’s meet, the team stands in second place in the Downeast Math League with 444 points, behind Washington Academy with 695, and ahead of MDI with 348, Ellsworth with 264, Sumner with 185, Bucksport with 135, and Deer Isle-Stonington with 117. That means they have the best record in Hancock County!
This year, teams don’t gather for meets at host schools. At some time during a meet week, the meets are administered by team coaches. At GSA, that coach is Isaac Vaccaro, who also “whipped up this sweet math logo!” Thanks, Isaac, and we hope the math team Mandelbrings as much enthusiasm to the next meet as you Mandelbrot to creating the logo.
GSA meets the diverse needs of our students by offering a wide variety of courses, including academically rigorous Honors and AP courses like those that have prepared our Math Team members well for success at math meets and in future coursework here and at college.
