The Georgetown School won big at the SCISA Math Meet (Division II), held at the Sumter Civic Center on January 20. Thirty-six teams from twenty-four schools around the state turned up to show their skills, both individually and as teams. First, all the students individually took an hour-long written test comprised of 50 questions, then the teams faced off in five speed rounds.
Ninth-grader Christopher Attias placed first overall in the individual competition, beating 180 other students. Great job, Chris!
The Georgetown School captured 7th place in the team competition, outscoring twenty-eight of the thirty-six teams. “This was our first time at the SCISA Math Meet and I am extremely proud of our team’s performance and our math program,” said Dr. Gates, “We were probably the smallest school there!” Congratulations on a job well done to Math Team members: Christopher, Elizabeth, Sarah E., Nathan, and Top.
