Kedron, Braelinn and Peachtree City Elementary Fourth Graders Take Top Spots at Annual Math Competition

It took four tiebreakers to determine the fourth grade winners of the 11th Annual Fayette County Elementary Math Tournament, but in the end Kedron Elementary was declared the county champs.

The team of Katie Austensen, Ian Buckalew, John Norris, and Clay Lawhead (alternate) answered the most questions correctly and lead their team to victory. Last year Kedron placed third in the competition.

The Braelinn Elementary team of Brady Meyer, Yuna Shimizu, Dylan Yost and Ian Fertig (alternate) finished second with Peachtree City Elementary and the team of Iain Hemenway, Owen Henahan, Jonathan Zhang, and Lucy Stone (alternate) taking third.

The top three teams each received a trophy to take back to their school to celebrate their achievement. In addition, as the county’s fourth grade champion, Kedron’s name will be added to the plaque of champions that is displayed in the math classroom at the LaFayette Educational Center.

All 17 elementary schools had teams of three plus one alternate at the tournament. Participants were determined through each school’s math competition with the four highest scoring students advancing to the county competition.
