The Boothbay Math Team had their third meet last week in Rockland already. Top scorers for Boothbay were Connor Demmons (52) (holy darn!!), Sam Betts (35), and Max Hoecker (27). Boothbay came in fourth in the meet.
For the 2016-17 season, Boothbay is in a low seventh place with 457 total points, trailing local rival Lincoln Academy by a mere 345 points placed in second. “You know, we are in a low right now as a team, mentally and emotionally. As a crucial member of the team, I plan on raising my team’s emotions just before we all sit silently for twelve minutes and do some dank math,” said Griffin Kane, an avid senior mathlete who said he plans on joining the 2017-18 math team as an assistant coach to the Gilchrists.
Boothbay Juniors make up a majority of the math team. In the Central Maine Math League, Connor Demmons (121) is in third, Max Hoecker (79) is in eleventh, Kyle Alley (31) is in thirty first, and Hailey Greenleaf (29) is in thirty second overall. When inquiring non-mathletes why they have not joined already, many anonymous members spoke of the overwhelming “clique” state of the team of juniors as well as finding no time on Wednesday afternoons to come to the practices because of their prescheduled “lavender bubble baths.”
Math Team practices are on Wednesdays from 1:45 pm to 2:45 pm. Come join the team and attend the next meet on January 25th and enjoy some magical snacks!!
