February 7, 2014
ESCHENBACH, Germany -- From left: Netzaberg Middle School students Mackenzie Dillenbeck and Matthew Saenz, sixth grade; Whitney Bivins, seventh grade; Dr. Boakai Kpinkpin, NMS Math Counts coach; and David Worthington, eighth grade, are all smiles after winning the Bavaria Chapter Math Counts Competition in Ansbach, Feb. 5.
The team "out-computed" seven schools in the competition to take top honors.
Worthington received first place for the "Sprint" competition, where participants were tasked with answering 30 questions in 40 minutes. He also won first place in the Countdown Round, besting eight other students.
The team will move on to the next round of the Math Counts Competition in Wiesbaden next month.
