A team of Bellefontaine High School juniors Ryan Dunn, Sakura Kawakam, Dylan Myers and Adam Verbsky recently received second place at the High School Math Shootout at Ohio Northern University.
A total of 18 schools participated in the day of solving math problems, which includes students taking turns demonstrating solutions to their problems.
The final “lightning” rounds require students to buzz in quickly for the chance to share their answers. The BHS team lead the competition for most of the afternoon, and then a last-minute run by Bluffton changed the course of the competition. For the final question, Bluffton edged out Bellefontaine by hitting the buzzer first and solving their problem correctly.
