Moore MST MathCounts Advance to State Competition

This week, 9 students from Moore MST traveled to UTTyler to compete in the East Texas chapter MathCounts competition.  MathCounts is a national program that provides students the opportunity to compete in live, in-person math contests against and alongside their peers.  Created in 1983, it is the longest running MathCounts program and is open to all sixth-, seventh-, and eighth- grade students.  At this year’s competition, Moore MST swept the awards.  The Moore team consisting of Simar Bains, Amy Christian, Angelie Fullo, and Zoe Strain, coached by Tamara Bowers placed 1st overall against all teams in East Texas.  The team also took home the top three individual awards.  Angelie Fullo placed 1st, Zoe Strain placed 2nd, and Amy Christian placed third against approximately 60 other competitors.  The members of the team now advance to the state competition in Austin on March 24th.  Way to go Mustang Mathletes!
