MATHCOUNTS written in red and white textThe MATHCOUNTS Competition Series is a middle school competition program, with live, in-person events in all 50 states.  During this competition, students engage in exciting, “bee-style” contests in which they compete against and alongside other motivated ‘mathletes’. At the local, state and national level, students win hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes every year.

On Saturday, February 10, 2018, 11 Cumberland County Middle Schools participated in the South Central Chapter Competition at PWC, where 17 total schools participated.  Three of the top 5 teams were from Cumberland County Schools; 1st place was Seventy-First Classical Middle School, 3rd place was Pine Forest Middle School, and 5th place was John Griffin Middle School. For the second year in a row, the top individual student was Sean Kim (Seventy-First Classical Middle School).  Third place overall was Li Cheryl (Seventy-First Classical Middle School), fourth place overall was Josue Fernandez (Pine Forest Middle School) and fifth place overall was Devin Roberts (Reid Ross Classical Middle School).  The top team and the Seventy-First Classical team members will advance to the state competition. The #4 student, Josue Fernandez (Pine Forest Middle School) will also advance to State as an individual since he was in the top four students but not on the advancing teams.  

Congratulations to all of the students who participated in this competition! Way to go Cumberland County Middle School ‘Mathletes’!   
Good luck to the top team and top individuals who will compete in the state level competition in March.
