The Bishop Brady High School Math Team completed its season with a regional championship of the SMASH League on February 18th. Five meets were held throughout southern New Hampshire from September through February and the team finished near the top at all of them. Team captains Jenny Zhuang and Aaron Svendsen did an outstanding job of organizing the team and helping with bracketing. This is the fifth consecutive year that Bishop Brady has won their division in the SMASH League.
On March 17th, the team traveled to Plymouth State to compete at the 43rd Annual New Hampshire State Math Competition. Nearly 60 teams from throughout the state brought their 10 best varsity math students to answer some extremely rigorous problems in both team and individual categories. Bishop Brady defended their state title from last year and came out on top in their division to capture the championship trophy yet again. The Math Team has garnered six state championships in the past 10 years. Math Team Advisor Erik Gustafson would like to thank all of the teachers and parents of these fine young mathletes for all of their hard work and encouragement. Bishop Brady has a strong math department and hopes to continue on this path of excellence for years to come.
