It is always inspiring to see young students excel in academics, and our Middle School Bobcats have certainly done so in the 2022-2023 Math League Contest. Our students’ achievements are commendable – a testament to their hard work, dedication, and passion for mathematics!

Under the leadership of Middle School math teacher Patrick Fleming, the Lake Tahoe School Bobcats had an outstanding performance in the contest with both the 6th and 7th-grade teams finishing in the top five of the Math League Press division. The sixth grade team was led by fifth-grader Roger Alpers, who finished in 1st place, followed by Artyom Zhakov, Elisabeth Higginbotham, and Kylie Mangiaracina. The seventh grade team was led by Zakary Weimer, who finished in 8th place, followed by Angie Alpers, Liam Coyle, Stellan Hamner-Jillson, and Lachlan McConnon and Enzo Vaninni, who tied for 37th place. The eighth graders were led by Logan Rive, who scored 18 points.

The team’s success is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the students, as well as the support and guidance of their teachers and mentors. It is also a testament to the school’s commitment to providing an academically-oriented environment that fosters the love of learning and promotes academic excellence. Excellent job by ALL of our Bobcats who participated in the contest!
