The Bainbridge High Math Club went to the biggest math tournament in the state this past weekend and brought home a first-place trophy.

The mathletes went to Moses Lake High School to compete in the “Math is Cool” Masters competition. Math Club advisor Joe Lanza said schools had to qualify for the Masters competition at one of two regional events (one in Seattle and one in Spokane).

The team of Keet Curtis, Noah Levine, Tarkan Al-Kazily, and Kawin Nikomborirak competed against some of the best math teams in Washington and placed first in their division.

Individually, Keet finished sixth out of 82 Calculus competitors with 61 points, and Tarkan placed 18th with 48 points.
