Two Elwood Middle School teams participated in the 2017 Suffolk County MoMathlon Tournament at Brookhaven National Labs on March 24. The eighth-grade team, featuring five students, placed fourth in the competition, while three of the students also scored top spots in the individual round and mixed schools round.

MoMath with supporters Con Edison and Brookhaven National Laboratory, sponsors several math tournaments in March and April for New York middle schoolers each year to encourage students to experience challenges, teamwork, refreshments, souvenirs, trophies and memories that will inspire them in the future.

Elwood’s eighth-grade team included students Jake Haddad, Andrew Mullan, Daniel Mullan, Stephanie Mullan and Rithika Narayan. Daniel placed fifth and Andrew placed sixth in the individual round, while Rithika was named the first place winner with her team in the mixed schools round.

“We are very proud of our Elwood Mathematicians,” said Director of Math, Science and Technology Eileen Kelly-Gorman.
