Aspen math team honored for excellence

-A A +A

On March 31, the Aspen Elementary Mathcounts team was rewarded for its many long hours of math practice and commitment to excellence.
The team made up of Do Vo, Duncan Fuehne, Tazzler Smith, and Christopher Koh placed 5th at the state Mathcounts competition.
The state contest was held at Albuquerque Academy, and the Aspen team was the only elementary team to place.
Do Vo placed fifth as an individual, and Christopher Koh placed 16th. Do’s placing makes him an alternate to the New Mexico National team. If for any reason, one of the top four students cannot participate in the national competition in Washington D.C., Do will compete.
The Mathcounts Competition Program is designed to excite and challenge middle school students. The program has four levels of competition, local, district, state and nationals.
The Aspen team had placed second — just behind Los Alamos Middle School — at the Northern New Mexico district competition on Feb. 10.
Between the district competition and state, the team logged more than 70 hours of practice time.
The team’s coaches were Phuong Vo and Jane Lataille. They ran the practices like any sport, three times a week, for three hours. Their belief in the boys on the team was demonstrated by the rigorous practice schedule they maintained.
