Four members of LA math team: Wenxin Liang, Stella Shi, Jemma Tang, and William Doan, traveled to Penn State University last week to compete in the Math Team National Championships as part of the Maine All-Star team.

“The team did very well facing exceedingly tough competition. We compete in division B. Maine’s top team of 15 students finished 7th in the country and received medals for placing,” said LA Math Team Coach Libby Moony.

Wenxin Liang and Stella Shi represented LA on the top team. Wenxin tied with two others for high scorer on the top team and received another medal.

Jemma Tang and William Doan competed on the B team. Jemma tied with one other for high scorer on the B team and also received another medal.

“All four students made me very proud due to their kindness and cooperation throughout the very long weekend,” said Moony. “It was amazing to see 37 students from every corner of Maine come together to form such solid teams after meeting each other for the first time on Thursday morning.”
