With 81 total teams in the league, Our Lady of Lourdes was honored to have two teams qualify to participate in this 21-team sectional competition. The following districts were represented at this competition: Arlington, Cornwall, Goshen, John Jay, Ketcham, Kingston, Lourdes, Middletown, Monroe, New Paltz, Spackenkill, Valley Central, and Washingtonville.
The Lourdes A team tied for second place with our section rivals Spackenkill A with an overall score 1 point lower than the winning team. The Lourdes B team performed admirably and tied for 10th place.
After the competition the students were treated to a presentation by Charles Steinhorn, a mathematics professor at Vassar College, based on Proofs from the Book by Paul Erdos.
Andrew Lam, Peter Zhu and Arthur Wang have been invited to participate in the NYSML competition on Friday March 31st. All three were invited based on their scores in the regular season, and will compete on the DUSO team. We are looking forward to next year and hoping that we have more OLL students invited!
