, Brady Young, Dylan Brant and Mason Heaslip got to the opportunity to show off their mathematical talents earlier in May at the first high school level Math Olympics.  Equipped with their calculators and pencils, these students battled nearly two dozen team from all across the DSBN in hopes of being named champions.  The competition was run in three segments, including an individual portion, a collaboration in pairs, and a final team relay.  Our mathletes had fun, were challenged, and got to meet other students with similar mathematical interests.
