From our final match on November 14

DBHS 32  STEVENSON 35 (PERFECT SCORE)

 

Every week, the contests get tougher.  Our 33 last week was phenomenal.  A 32 this week is equally phenomenal.

 

Sometimes, you just have to tip your hat to the other team.  Another perfect score for Stevenson High.  Wow!  Congratulations to them.  They certainly earned this victory. 

 

Thank you, everyone, for your support this season.  We’d especially like to thank Reuben Jones and Randy Thomas for making this possible.  Without you two, we wouldn’t be able to do this.  Thank you, Denise Loera for your support and to USB as well. 

 

We will still be competing, just not in Math Madness. 

 

Some perspective:  When I (Mr. Brose) started this, I was told by a participant that at the end of the season there would only be about a dozen or so students still competing.  This student said that most students lost interest and were frustrated when they weren’t in the “Top 5.”  I was determined to change this.  While I am extremely proud of our results this season, I am even more proud of our participation.  For me, that’s what it’s all about.  I want as many students participating as possible.  I am so proud to say that we had 55 students participate today!

 

In fact, while we are ranked #23 in the nation for our top 5 scores we would be even higher if they took more of our scores.  Check this out:

 

Top 10 scores:  #12 in the NATION

Top 15 scores:  # 6 in the NATION

Top 20 scores:  # 4 in the NATION

 

We are, without a doubt, one of the “deepest” teams in the Nation.  That speaks volumes for our school and our math program. 

 

Today’s match ….. for those that have to know!

 

The match is 30 minutes.  At about 10 minutes in, we were tied 17-17.  At about the halfway mark, we were tied 24-24. 

With 10 minutes left, they snuck ahead 31-30 and then pulled away 34-30. 

We were able to get 2 perfect scores from Tim and Andrew to get to 32, but they finished with a perfect 35. 

Tough to compete against that!
