CCSD students off to National Mathcounts in Orlando

​For the second consecutive year, the Challenge School Mathcounts team, coached by math teacher Matt Bixby, took top honors in the Colorado Mathcounts Competition on March 15. The Campus Middle School team took sixth place.

Challenge School seventh-grader Anjalie Kini and eighth-grader Isani Singh placed third and fourth in the individual competition and earned an all-expense paid trip, sponsored by Raytheon, to attend the 2014 National Mathcounts Competition, May 8-11 in Orlando, Florida. They will be part of the Colorado team going to nationals, which will be coached by Matt Bixby.
