The Fenwick High School Math Team was declared State Champions in Division 2A at the ICTM State Math Awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 4th! This accomplishment marks the second time (2002) in the history of Fenwick that they have taken home the state championship trophy. The team has qualified for the state finals for 29 consecutive years and has been led by Roger Finnell since its conception 42 years ago.
Over 40 Fenwick Friars have worked countless hours in weekly practices, from November through April, to achieve this ranking.
In addition to taking home the team state championship, Fenwick was ranked 1st Place in the following events: Oral Topic, 8-Person Junior-Senior, Precalculus Team, and Geometry Team. The Algebra 1 Team and 8-person Frosh-Soph team earned 2nd place trophies.
