Students Qualify for State Math 24 Challenge Competition

On May 4, 2016, eight Titusville Area School District 4th – 8th grade students participated in the Riverview Intermediate Unit 6 Regional Math 24 Challenge Competition. Those students were 4th grade students Sophia Sampson (Hydetown Elementary) and Chauncey Bowens (Main Street Elementary), 5th grade students Kasen Neely and Eli Sampson (both Main Street Elementary), 6th grade students Garrett Knapp and Ella Matteson, 7th grade student Joe Banner, and 8th grade student Emma Cartney (all Titusville Middle School). 

At the competition, six of the eight Titusville students won awards. In the semi-final round, Eli Sampson placed 2nd in the 4th and 5th grade division and Ella Matteson placed 2nd in the 6th grade division. During the semi-final round, Kasen Neely, Garrett Knapp, Joe Banner, and Emma Cartney all earned spots to compete in the final round. In the final round, Kasen won 1st place in the 4th and 5th grade division, Garrett won 2nd place in the 6th grade division, Joe won 2nd place in the 7th and 8th grade division, and Emma won 3rd place in the 7th and 8th grade division. In addition, Kasen, Garrett, and Emma earned the distinction of scoring the highest point totals of all competitors in their divisions. 

Because they placed either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the final round at the regional competition, Kasen, Garrett, Joe, and Emma all qualified to compete at the state level tournament. The state tournament will be held in Harrisburg, Pa on June 15, 2016. Congratulations to all the winners!
