On Wednesday, January 16th, the Our Lady of Lourdes Math Team competed in the DUSO (Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan and Orange counties) Math Team competition for our Section at Spackenkill High School. With almost 70 students from Lourdes, Pawling High School, Poughkeepsie High School, and Spackenkill High School, Our Lady of Lourdes performed admirably.
Some highlights from the night included:
- The Lourdes A Team, consisting of Raymond Aye, Theo DeGuzman, Jerry Gong, Amanda Romero, and Albert Zhu came in 1st place with a big lead of three points.
- The Lourdes B Team, consisting of Darren Horton, Alexis Marin, David McGrath, Kyle Shi, Lydia Vigne, and Brian Zhu placed 8th.
- Raymond Aye and Albert Zhu deserve a special recognition for being the only two students to correctly answer the final individual question. Additionally, they were the only two students with an individual score of 5 out of 6 possible points.
- We are happy to announce that the Lourdes A team will be competing at Sectionals in March and that Raymond Aye and Albert Zhu will be invited to compete at the NYS Math League Competition in April.
We look forward to continued success from during the last regular season competition here at OLL in February. Go Lourdes!!
