Top Mathematicians

W.S. Mount Elementary School’s Math Club defended their award-winning reputation this May by shining brightly at the ninth annual Suffolk County Math Tournament held at Stony Brook University.

During the event, 66 teams comprised of 330 students in fourth through sixth grade competed. Awards were given to the top three teams, and individual awards were given to the top 10 competitors. As a result of their determination, the Mount Math Masters’ two teams were awarded first and second place in the competition. In addition, Mount students were awarded seven of the 10 available trophies for individual excellence.

The district congratulates the following students and their coach, Linda Earls, on this remarkable achievement: Neal Carpino, Matthew Chen, Ivan Ge, Alexander Lin, Carolyn Lin, Ashwinaa Vaithianathan, Jacqueline Wu, Claire Yang, William Zhang and Ari Zucker.
