Saint George's 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teams participated in the State "Masters" Math is Cool competition in Moses Lake on Saturday, April 21.  The 6th grade team won 1st Place in the "phi" division (2nd highest division).  Congrats to teammates Steel Lindauer, Sam Morris, Annalie Nachreiner, and Kara Chiang.  Kara had the highest overall individual score in the phi division, and the 3rd highest score overall in the entire state of Washington for 6th graders!

The 7th grade team of Gabe Gustafson, Nate Hennings, John Nowland, and Paul Poole placed in the top 4 of their "e" division (3rd highest division) at Masters.  Judy Fitzpatrick returned to coach this team to State, where they did a great job of working together as a team.

The 8th grade team earned 6th overall in the phi division out of 12 teams, but were #1 in the Spokane area in this division, according to coach Shane Kangas, who also coached the 6th graders.  Congratulations to teammates Stella Brown, Patrick McCarthy, Tariq Ravasia, and Ethan Wu.  See a Photo Gallery of all three teams at State Masters competition.  Go Dragons!
