Some students can’t wait for the weekend, where they will get a break from the pressures of school, but 13 students at Cape Henry Collegiate School spent their Saturday competing in the Christopher Newport University Regional High School Mathematics Contest on Nov. 14.
Of all the students participating in the contest, primarily from public schools in the region, New Oasis students at Cape Henry took home a number of honors.
Grace Li was the highest scoring 11th grader, Cape Henry’s highest scorer and the third-highest scorer of all students who participated.
Cape Henry Collegiate had seven students place in the overall top-ten: Grace Li, Andy Hong, Daisy Zhang, Justin Dubik, James Tyler, and another who preferred not to be named.
Hong, Zhang, Li are are New Oasis students. James Tyler, a Cape Henry student, was the highest-scoring ninth-grade student.
Not only are these students bright and enthusiastic, they are considerate and respectful. Tyler Faubert, who drove the students over and back, said each student shook hands with him and thanked him as they left the bus!
All participants in the competition were: Tom Chen, Justin Dubik, Andy Hong, Grace Li, Nicole Rychagov, James Tyler, Daisy Yang, Daisy Zhang, Harry Zhang, Wenxi Zhang, and Frank Zhu.
Congratulations to all Cape Henry students for a successful weekend!
