Twenty-seven students from South Whidbey Elementary School recently spent an entire day competing in the annual Washington State Mathematics Council Math Olympia Contest hosted by The Evergreen School in Shoreline.

Over 50 teams from Skagit, Snohomish, King and Island counties with students in grades 5-8 participated.

Two of South Whidbey’s sixth and eighth grade teams finished second in the short problem category and were awarded “ribbons for excellence.”

“All of the students had a fun time and are looking forward to competing again next year,” coach Clyde Monma said.

Monma coached the seventh and eighth grade teams, while South Whidbey High School seniors Fiona Callahan and Amelia Hensler coached the fifth and sixth grade teams.
