Our math team brought home TGS’s first state trophy! They won the SCISA State Math Meet, held at the Sumter Civic Center on January 17. The competition consisted of a written math test, then a lighting round where players have 60 seconds to respond to problems flashed at them on a card.
Our team (Elizabeth, Chris, Isabella, Zachary, Grayson and Ryleigh) defeated teams from all over the state, including powerhouse schools like Charleston Collegiate and Beaufort Academy, as well as local rivals Lowcountry Prep and Conway Christian.
As a team, TGS beat the scores of every other Division II school in the state, while Chris and Isabella took individual honors. Chris received the highest score overall of any student in the competition and Isabella tied for fifth place.
Our whole school (and especially our math teachers) are thrilled by this victory. We were by far the smallest school in the SCISA State Math Meet and we nailed it! Congratulations, Nerd Herd Math-letes!
