“In a certain month, three Sundays have dates that are even numbers. What day of the week is the 12th of the month?” Students from Saint Gregory the Great Academy were eager to answer questions like this one during the eighth annual Holy Cross High School Math Competition held on April 7. At the end of the lightning round single elimination for the top 16 individual students competing against each other from schools across the region, eighth grade student Julianna Golden (pictured below, left) won second place while classmate Colleen Kalinowski (pictured below, right), also in eighth grade, tied for third place.
The picture below shows the entire group representing Saint Gregory’s (left to right, top row): Victoria Posivak (top 16 individual), Julianna Golden (top 16 individual, second place), Colleen Kalinowski (top 16 individual, tied for third place), Justin Fink; (left to right, bottom row): Nicole Zwennes, Lauren Frascella, Chad Nelson, Patrick DiPasquale. You make us proud, Academy students!
