Finishes Third In State Math Meet

 ORANGEBURG – After comparing all the answers and scores, the judges have determined the winners in the South Carolina Independent School Association’s High School Math Meet.
  SCISA Executive Director Larry Watt announced that Ben Buzhardt, a member of the team representing W. Wyman King Academy, captured third place in the Division II State Math Meet individual competition.
  Chris Attias from The Georgetown School, took top honors in the individual competition, followed by Lowcountry Preparatory School, Pawley’s Island, student Gavin Zhou in second place.
  Shaylah McDonald served as the sponsor for the W. Wyman King Academy students.
  The High School Math Meet is an annual SCISA event conducted in two divisions, determined by school enrollment. Division I is comprised of schools with larger enrollments than Division II.
  The High School Math Meet is open to students in grades 9-12. Each school can enter no more than two teams of five students each.
  A total of 64 teams from 38 SCISA-member school participated in the two-day event.
  During the competition all students take a one-hour multiple choice written math test consisting of 50 questions. Following the test, each team member, one at a time, participates in a speed round of five questions.
  “These students representing the independent schools are some of the best in the state,” Watt said. “These are our next-generation mathamaticians, scientists and teachers.”   
  The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 120 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students.
  Founded in 1965, the State of South Carolina incorporated SCISA as an exclusively educational organization with the responsibilities of establishing accreditation standards, coordinating academic and athletic competition and providing professional development for member organizations.
