Eisenhower took a big haul at the Clarion University High School Mathematics Competition this month.

One student walked away with a first place trophy.

Another came away with second place.

“Eisenhower had the top two scores for Class A schools,” advisor Anna Joncas said. “Josef Bauer had the top score. Aidan Farrell placed second.”

And the school was the highest scoring team in that division.

According to Joncas, 11 of the 25 teams in the competition were categorized as Class A.

“This is my first time taking a group of students to this math competition; and honestly, I didn’t know what to expect,” Joncas said.

Students had two hours to solve as many problems as they could.

“It was very exciting when they named Josef and Aidan as the top scores, and our Eisenhower team as the first place team,” Joncas said. “This group of students makes Eisenhower proud.”

Participating students were Brody VanOrd, Delaney Marquis, Shannon Kellogg, Mariette Williams, Naomi Haight, Eric Honsberger, Lydia Giannini, Bauer, and Farrell.
