2019 Math Madness Season Ends
Well ….. it was close. We fought hard and we did really, really well.
The Harker School (Saratoga) 38,
The DBHS Brahmas 36
Despite losing, we actually moved UP from #20 to #17 in the Nation.
Coaches know how rare that is! So, obviously we didn’t have a bad day. They were just better.
As always our team score is comprised of our top 5 scores.
Junior TONY WAN was perfect once again with an 8 out of 8. He was our only perfect score. Tony is now ranked #49 in the Nation.
Freshman JASON KIM, Sophomore AARON SUN, Junior WARRICK HE and Seniors KESHAV SRIRAM and NATHAN SONG all contributed with 7 out of 8.
To give you an idea of the “depth” of the team, if the scoring was based on the top 10 students, we would be ranked #13 in the nation!
To give you an idea of the “depth” of the team, if the scoring was based on the top 15 students, we would be ranked #09 in the nation!
To give you an idea of the “depth” of the team, if the scoring was based on the top 20 students, we would be ranked #05 in the nation!
Honestly, the fact that we can even compete against a private school like Harker is pretty humbling.
Being able to give admission exams, charging $52,000/year in tuition, having an 11 to 1 teacher to student ratio, having a feeder system in place, etc. has to give them a slight advantage.
Hats off to them, though, they did a great job. We gave it our best and they still outperformed us. It’s nice to know that the gap is getting smaller …. we are getting closer.
