24 Math Tournament


Our EY 24 Math Competition Team was small but mighty! This year 3rd graders were invited to participate. Their rounds were for fun rather than competition. Vincent was our lone 3rd grade representative but he is now recruiting friends for next year! Representing 4th grade were Jack, Michael, and Vada, while our 5th graders were Norris, Tanner, Trevor, and Ty. All 7 of our 4th and 5th graders qualified for the quarterfinal rounds for their respective grade levels and ultimately Trevor captured 3rd place and Ty was the champion. Congratulations to all 8 of our “mathletes” and thank you for representing Ewing Young with solid math skills and great sportsmanship!

Ewing Young was well represented by seven students at the district’s annual 24 math competition. Fourth graders Jonas, Norris, and Ty along with fifth graders, Emily, Gracie, Grant, and Ronak, joined over 80 other students from around the district. All students had to use their quick mental math skills to make four digits total 24. Ty, Emily, Grant, & Ronak all qualified for the quarter-finals, with Ty, Emily, and Ronak advancing to the semi-finals. Special congratulations go to Ty and Emily for placing 2nd in their respective grade levels!

On Saturday we had 10 of our EY students spend their morning at the 24 competition: 

4th graders: John, Lucas, & Rylan
5th graders: Emanuel, Joy, Mia, Abbey, Paige, Shelby, & Jesse
About 110 students were registered for the event. Each student played 3 rounds and did quite well. At the end of three rounds the top 16 at each grade level continued on. In the Quarterfinals EY was represented by:
4th graders: Lucas & Rylan
5th graders: Mia, Abbey, Paige, & Shelby
From there, the top 8 advanced. Our Semifinalists were:
4th grade: Rylan
5th grade: Mia & Abbey
Then the top 4 at each grade level competed for the championship.
Congratulations to 2nd place finisher Rylan Sattler!

As always, the EY students showed good sportsmanship at all times and supported their teammates as they advanced. Andy Byerley made a special effort to compliment the EY students’ sportsmanship to me after the event. Way to go EY Mathletes!
A big “Thank you” to Mr. Milner & Mrs. Mitchell for their work on shirts for the team.
