The Christ the King High School math team is adding up victories.
The team placed first out of 200 high schools in the New York State Mathematics League, after the first three of six matches.
The school was number one overall last year after competing in contests from October 2012 to March 2013.
With just three more monthly contests this academic year, from January to March 2014, the team is poised to multiply their championships.
During the math contests students are asked to solve six complex and original problems under regular test conditions.
The Christ the King team is comprised of more than thirty top math students, who practice each week under the supervision of team moderator, Richard Hartman.
“I very proud and so is principal Peter Mannarino,” Hartman said. “It shows that the more you practice the better you do. Our top students are as good as any top students through the state.”
The next math contest will be held on January 14.
