MVA Earns First Place in Mathlympics
Eleven teams representing high schools in Lake and Sumter Counties participated in the annual ‘Mathlympics’ math competition, hosted virtually this year, by Lake-Sumter State College. Montverde Academy’s Math Club participated with two teams competing. Team 1 consisted of Hanh (Lucy) Nguyen, Duoshan (Michael) Zhang, CJ Hamlin, and Mateus Mayer; and Team 2 consisted of Jathin Gadiparthi, Benjamin Gunasekera, Lily Henne, and Kendyl Cardwell.
Students worked hard answering 45 questions within 60 minutes. Overall, Montverde’s Team 2 earned first place, and Team 1 received second, although the same school cannot be recognized twice.
“We are incredibly proud of the work these students have done, and look forward to next year’s competition, where we hope to return in person,” said Dr. Anne Browdy and Ms. Candace Dietrich, MVA Mathematics faculty.
