This past Saturday members of the Math Club and Mu Alpha Theta competed in the 20th Annual Catholic High School Mathematics Tournament in Baton Rouge. Attending were approximately 650 students from 34 high and middle schools statewide.
On the Algebra I test Diego Swonger placed third, missing only one question. The order of finish on the test prevented him from placing higher. On the Geometry test Jason Lafourcade placed sixth while Kaden McLaughlin placed third. Tu Le was awarded an honorable mention ribbon on the Advanced Math test. Finally, Daniel O'Leary earned an honorable mention ribbon for an eighth place finish on the Calculus test in which approximately 100 students participated.
Our Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II students earned a third place finish on the lower Interschool Test, a test in which all students work on the test and one answer sheet is submitted. Contributing to this effort were:
Algebra I students Peter Crean, Frederick Drewitz, Noah Flynn, Evan Stevens, Diego Swonger, Alex Thiel
Geometry students Brady Hebbler, Jason Lafourcade, Kaden McLaughlin
Algebra II students Christopher Hammett, Elliot Lastrapes, Brandon Marshall, and Chase Tollin.
Congratulations to all of these young men for representing their school so well. For more pictures, click here.
