May 11, 2018

Friars finish in Top Ten in nine of 12 events!


The 31-member Fenwick State Math Team has won the seventh-place team award at the 2018 State Math Contest Finals. Hosted annually by the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics, this school year’s competition was held last weekend at the University of Illinois in Champaign, IL.

“The Friars finished in the top 10 for the 19th straight year,” reports Fenwick Math Teacher, team coach and alumnus Roger Finnell ’59. “We finished in the top 10 in nine of 12 events.” The two-person, Frosh-Soph Team earned a spot in the four-team playoff for the state title, Mr. Finnell continues. “Thanks to all team members, especially seniors, for all of your time and effort,” he adds. Awards were given to the Top 10 teams and individuals in each event.
