Math club starts with first place in two divisions

Riley Karr, Staff Writer

Math Club is off to a winning start this year. Advisor Amy Spanaugle said that the team competed against much larger schools and that they were the smallest school in attendance at the November 8th California contest. This was the first contest that the team has attended this year. Spanaugle thinks that the only thing that could help the team is if more people join and go to the meets.

“I’m so proud of these kids.  They did great, and we were the smallest school in our division.” Spanaugle said.

Junior Rickie Branson joined the math team because she felt that she had a lot to contribute to the team and she enjoys having something to do on Saturdays.

“Before I start I go through my old notes, quizzes and tests from all my old math classes, I also drink some caffeine and make sure I have gum,” said Branson.
