Bulldogging the Mathematics Skills

Congratulations Bulldogs!

A team of Creswell High School students recently competed with nine local high schools in a mathematics skills competition, held at Lane Community College . Their showing was stellar!

Creswell’s participants were:

  • Algebra: Leesha Richmond & McKenzie Hanson.
  • Geometry: Nate Mooney & Alexis Chavez
  • Advanced Algebra: Jared Pease & Andew Spriggs
  • Advanced Math: Connor Ashcroft & Ben Vaughn

Creswell HS placed 3rd behind Marist and Sheldon and just ahead of Thurston and Churchill.

Individual placements for the Bulldogs were outstanding. Connor Ashcroft placed 2nd in the Advanced Math Division. Andrew Spriggs placed 3rd in the Advanced Algebra Division. McKenzie Hanson placed 5th in the Algebra Division.

“Our students did a great job.” – Gary Jones, Team Coach and CHS Teacher

Well Done Bulldogs! We are proud of you!

Math Champs!

Congratulations CMS Tigers!

Creswell Middle School had a fantastic showing at the Perennial Math competition in Albany at Linn-Benton Community College this Saturday. Perennial Math is an Alabama based organization that hosts math competitions throughout the country in individual and team formats.

Five students representing their school compete as individuals in a 30 minute, 15 question problem solving test, then after an intermission in a 20 minute, 10 question team test. The Creswell Middle School team was comprised of 7th graders Abbe Grubbs, Emma and Julianne Kersgaard, and 8th graders Justyn Watt and Abigayle Mercer. Grubbs earned top individual honors in the 7th grade competition. Watt came in 3rd place and Mercer garnered 1st place in the individual competition for 8th graders. In the team competition the group competed as an 8th grade team due to a rule that puts the team in the grade level of the oldest student on the team. Once again, Creswell came out on top as the Team Champion of the competition.

Tigers know math!
