Pennsylvania Places 5th in the nation!
Park Forest Middle School First Place at Pennsylvania MATHCOUNTS 2014 State Competition

151 students from 61 schools across the Commonwealth met at the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey on March 8, using math skills they’ve practiced since school started in fall. Students raced against time and peers to claim top place in the Pennsylvania MATHCOUNTS competition.

The team from Park Forest Middle School in State College – Jack Piazza (7th Grade), Aaron Li (7th Grade), Julian Sim (7th Grade) and Thomas Sowers (8th Grade), coached by Rebekah Sjoberg and Susan Owens, claimed first place in the team round. Christopher Lee (7th Grade) from Carson Middle School, coached by Michael McConnegly and Inna Borisov, placed first in the individual competition.
A huge thank you to members of the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers and sponsors – Shell, Pennoni, Pennsylvania Engineering Foundation, Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association, and PPG Foundation – for bringing this premier event together for the students.
