At this year’s club fair, Wesleyan’s favorite pi-loving, problem-solving team revisited the podium, brandishing their first-place trophy from last year’s state mathematics tournament. The math team is not just a club; they are a close-knit team that competes in many tournaments and often wins. And this year, they are encouraging new recruits to join throughout all the grades.
According to the Wesleyan newsletter, “the Twelfth Annual Rockdale Mathematics Competition at Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology was attended by the Wesleyan Math Team on Saturday, September 24th. There were 53 schools and 576 students from across the state of Georgia participating in this event. This is the first time the Wesleyan Math Team has sent three complete teams. The varsity math team members consisted of Daniel Baisier, Sara Carmichael, Ethan Moon, and Angela Yang. There were two JV teams to represent Wesleyan. The JV-B members consisted of Lauren Oakes, Katie Tanner, Braden Thorne and Daniel Woods while the JV-A team consisted of Matthew Plunk, Cameron Potter, Dylan Sullenberger and Andy Yang. Daniel Baisier received the Top School Individual Award with the highest points and the JV-A team won 2nd place in the Independent School Division.”
