Weber Middle School placed first in the fifth annual 7th and 8th Grade Math Olympiad Tournament, sponsored by the St. Martin de Porres Marianist School and hosted by Kellenberg Memorial High School, on March 10.
The five-member team took top honors after competing against approximately 40 teams. Participants included seventh-grader Joseph Melkonian and eighth-graders Anna Finkelstein, Sarah Finkelstein, Julia Ruskin and Sherry Shi.
The team will now advance to the state tournament at the Museum of Mathematics in New York City. A date for the event is pending.
“I could not be more proud of these students,” said Weber teacher and Math Olympiad coach Adam Wolfert. “Our accolades were due to their hard work and perseverance. This is very exciting for all of us.”
