Our Math Challengers Team (Isabelle, Bridget, Jalisa, Melissa, Angel, Rainy, Kira and Emily) brought their Yorkie energy and enthusiasm to the SFU this weekend for the Regional Math Challengers competition. This tournament is an enriching competition for Grade 8s and 9s.

Our team competed in two individual and one group round on Saturday. They were placed in a competitive pool with the several schools in the Lower Mainland, and were unfortunately defeated.

On a brighter note, congratulations to Melissa who placed in the top 10 individual round and competed in the one-to-one buzz verbal competition (face-off round).

Overall, the girls would agree that the competition was a great experience for the team!
