 After three rounds of math competition, the Lakers received an overall score worthy of placing them as the championship team in the Kentucky Lake Regional!  This qualifies the team for the state championship to be held in Lexington, Kentucky later in March.  The members of the advancing team are Sean Williams, Maya Munoz, Emerson Herndon, and Ava Bogard. The Lakers also received some more special recognition as Sean Williams was the second highest scoring individual in the entire tournament.  In addition, the tournament concluded with a countdown round, which is a single elimination competition for the top twelve scoring individuals.  The Laker Team had four members that qualified for this part of the tournament…Sean Williams, Ava Bogard, Divine Ezinma and Tyler Sebby. The competitions are head-to-head, where students answer math questions in a quick recall format.  After the countdown round was finished, Tyler Sebby came in fourth place and Sean Williams claimed the championship!
