MathCounts competition and will be moving on to compete at the state level! At the Manhattan competition, held on Saturday, February 4, 2012 Anderson also won the trophy for "Most Improved School", for moving from 11th place last year to 2nd place this year. Team coach Carolyn Abbott, Anderson 7th and 8th grade Math teacher, deserves major credit for getting the team in such incredible shape over the last few months!
Individual results were impressive: Max Fishelson (8th grade) was #2 in Manhattan overall, Sophia Zheng (8th grade) was #10 overall and Julia Hou (8th grade) was #11 overall. Steven Litvack-Winkler (7th grade) and Joseph Gelb (8th grade) scored high enough to have made the Top 16. Team members Nala Sharadjaya (7th grade), Justin Kim (7th grade), Audrey Lang (8th grade), Emily Redler (8th grade) and Irene Brogdon (6th grade) all scored amazingly, too, doing the team and The Anderson School very proud !
Sophia Zheng also won 3rd place in the "Countdown Round", an exciting, challenging Jeopardy-style live competition in front of the entire crowd of 500 spectators at the end of the afternoon.
Congratulations and we wish our team all the best at the state competition!
