MPH wins first place in math competition

Manlius Pebble School took home the prize at this year's Chapter MathCounts Competition.

The Syracuse Academy of Science, which had been last year's winning school, finished second and Onondaga Hill Middle School came in third.

The event was held Feb. 5 at Lockheed Martin.

All five MPH students were among the top 11 individual scorers, with seventh-grader Ini Oguntola, of Jamesville, and sixth-grader Nick Jerge, of Manlius, finishing in first and second place, respectively.

The other three MPH students were eighth-graders Olivia Sheppard and Michelle Capeling, and sixth-grader Kai Maier.

For their first place finish, the MPH team members each received a $50 gift certificate to Carousel Mall and qualified to compete in the state Mathcounts Competition to take place March 19 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy.
