This spring, St. Dominic High sponsored its 39th annual Math Festival with 10 elementary schools competing for awards. Assumption School in O’Fallon had 14 students from seventh and eighth grade in the competition. After several individual rounds, it came to the elimination round of the competition. Six of Assumption’s students, three 7th graders and three 8th graders, qualified for the elimination round and moved to the final competition. The individual first place winner of the entire Math Festival was Danielle Dang, an eighth grader at Assumption School.
Other Assumption School teams also did well. In first-place was the team of Ava Grossman, Sydney Moore, Nathan Dang, McKenna Sweier, and Ben Hembrock. In second place was the team of Isabelle Schenk, Caitlyn Doriman, Clayton Foster and Diego Herrera. In third place was the team of Anna Kleckner, Matt Fischer, Garrett Drohr and Madison Huff.
