Branton reacts with extreme surprise when his name is called as high scorer for the Middle School Math Meet team.

The week after the school trip, on March 22 and 23, the High School and Middle School Math Meet Teams competed in the SCISA Math Meet. On March 22, the High School Math Team (Isaac, Ella, Kelsi, Annika, and Morgan) gathered at the school at 7:30 to head to the Sumter Civic Center. Once they arrived there, Dr. Gates took the team to Hardees for breakfast. The Middle School Math Team (Eleanor, Nathan, Sam, Nolan, and Branton) had a similar morning the next day with Mrs. Crosby, minus getting Hardees. Both of the meets began with the speed round. Students were given ten minutes to solve ten math problems. Then everyone was given one hour to answer 50 questions in the written test. While the participants ate lunch, the results were tallied.

TGS had some good results. For the high school, Morgan got the highest score on the team, and got eighth overall individually. For the middle school, Branton got the highest score out of the team, and the whole team got eighth overall. There are now some more trophies for our trophy case! Great job, Math Teams!
