Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB) held its annual Math Track Meet last week with Rugby and Bowbells taking the top stops in the competition. The meet involved eight counties, 14 towns, 27 teams and 104 students.

According to Scott Johnson, math instructor at DCB, the math meet is set-up to give high school students the opportunity to compete mathematically and showcase their academic abilities.

The competition started out with individual testing in Algebra I (freshman and/or sophomores) and Algebra II (juniors and/or seniors), which was followed by individual testing for Geometry (freshman and/or sophomores) and Advanced Math (juniors and/or seniors).

Once the individual tests were completed, the competition ended with team competitions.

The results were as follows:

– Algebra I: First place Jayden Parkinson of Bowbells, second place Wyatt Olson of Velva and third place Jerzey Parisien of Belcourt

– Geometry: First place Jayden Parkinson of Bowbells, second place – Sawyer Harmel of Rugby and third place – Brooke Anderson of Rugby

– Algebra II: First place Alex Bly of Lignite, second place Trenton Sanford of Rugby and third place Nikoli Schoenborn of Bottineau

– Advanced Math: First place Trenton Sanford of Rugby, second place Melody Johnson of Rugby and third place Paul Herr of Velva

– Team Test: First place Rugby, second place Rugby and third place Bowbells.

Johnson stated the tests held questions which the college felt would challenge the students. He added that the students did a remarkable job in taking the tests.

“I think it went well,” Johnson said.

Students from Bottineau, Bowbells, Burke Central, Glenburn, TGU Granville, Kenmare, Max, Newburg, Rugby, South Prairie, St. John, TMCHS, Velva and Westhope participated in the math meet.
