Two teams from the East Rockaway Middle School competed at the Second Annual Math Tournament by the Sea at Long Beach Middle School on May 17.
The seventh grade team was comprised of Peter Kaplan, Jordan Lu, Kevin Lynch, Kieran Lynch and Francesco Maio, while Louis DeSano, Briahna McConnell, Julia Passanisi, Mackenzie Sackaris and Sarah Warszawiak represented the eighth grade team.
The students competed in three distinct events, including solving 10 complex problems independently in 30 minutes, working in teams of five to tackle more challenging problems and then joining forces with students from across Nassau and Suffolk counties to form mixed-district teams.
The event completed with an awards ceremony, where Briahna McConnell’s team placed third overall for the mixed-team event, and Julia Passanisi’s team placed second overall for the mixed-team event.
Teachers Alissa Longo and Brigid Mulvaney would like to thank all the students for working hard at the event and representing East Rockaway in such proud fashion!
