MATH MADNESS - WEEK 7
Well, Brahma faithful, it doesn’t get any closer than this. Seriously.
We knew that it was going to be tough and that we would have to be firing on all cylinders as we competed against Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Lexington, KY.
This was our toughest competition, well, ever.
BRAHMAS 33 -- DUNBAR 32
Well, here it goes:
With 5 minutes left in the half hour match, we were tied 31-31, thanks to a perfect score by our Math Team President, TIMOTHY YEH.
With ONE MINUTE left, our SOPHOMORE, TONY WAN, gets his 7th point for our 2nd PERFECT SCORE to put us up 32-31.
We can only celebrate for 15 seconds, as DUNBAR HIGH ties it up 32-32 with 45 SECONDS LEFT.
With 20 seconds left on the clock, our Math Team Vice President, CLARA KIM, gets our 3rd PERFECT SCORE to seal the match 33-32. WE WON!
Had we tied, 32-32, we would have lost the tie-breaker (avg. time) 27-23.
