MATHCounts at RMS

Modified: Monday, Feb 18th, 2013

The Rochelle Middle School math team — Alec Tilton, Alex Harvey, Julia Frye, Ashley Benge, Blake Helser and Hailey Keilman — participated in the regional MathCounts competition last Saturday at Sauk Valley Community College. This small team of six students competed exceptionally well in the competition against five area schools. RMS won the team round and will be competing in the state competition next month. Additionally, Tilton, Harvey and Frye were among the top eight students from the individual round and then competed head-to-head with other finalists by answering a series of verbal questions. Tilton won second place in this competition. At the end of the meet, Harvey was recognized for having the best individual score on the written tests of anyone else in the entire competition. It was a very proud day for the RMS math team. Many of the students on math team participate in various other extra-curricular activities, but they still find time for early-morning practices before school. They are looking forward to representing Rochelle Middle School well at the state competition. (Photo submitted)
