Hall, Sanchez lead Caravan to 4th place in math contest
On February 2 Mount Carmel’s Math Team attended the Chicago Catholic Math Contest at Loyola University. The team placed fourth, the first time the team has placed at this competition.
Congratulations to individual placers Kolton Hall ’21 (6th overall) and Cesar Sanchez ’20 (7th).
In addition to Hall and Sanchez, team members who participated in this event were Kieran Conjar ’19, Blake Lopez ’20 and Jon Weber ’20. The team actually played “one man short” of the usual six, due to an illness, so its ability to finish in fourth place (based on total scores of only five team members) is all the more impressive.
The team was coached by MC math teacher David Milavickas.
The event included both individual and group math tests, according to Hall. The material ranged from Algebra 1 to Precalculus.
This was Hall’s first time participating in this annual contest. He looks forward to next year, when he plans to perform even better by “doing more studying for this event.”
