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.

Christ the King High School announced a new head varsity football coach, Tyree Allison, who has already tackled the pros will now share his experience with the Royals.

Allison, who had a cup of coffee with the New Orleans Saints, has signed on to take over the Royals Varsity Football team.  The Hofstra University graduate also played with the Detroit Fury, the Tennessee Valley Vipers and the Mohegan Wolves in the Arena Football League.

“Tyree has been a valued member of our faculty.  We obviously knew of his NFL career and coaching experience on both the High School and Collegiate levels. When the football season ended this year and the coaching positions became available, I was glad to see Tyree submitted his resume,” said Principal Peter J. Mannarino.

Allison, who is also a teacher at the Middle Village School, said he excited for this chance.

“I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity by the Board of Trustees. Since joining the faculty this school has become my second family.  Watching the academic growth of my students has always been my greatest reward,” Allison said.  “I value the time spent in the NFL and know how important proper football training is to being successful in all walks of life.  To be able to share my experience and passion with the Christ the King community as head coach is a wonderful way to give something back to all they have given me.  My goal is to bring a winning tradition to Christ the King football and with the help of my talented staff and these fine student athletes, that’s exactly what we will do.”

The Christ the King won just once this past season while racking up seven losses.
