Posts Tagged ‘Preston Trails Chapter’


Many Metroplex Math Circle students participated in today’s Preston Trails Chapter MATHCOUNTS competition.  But we are particularly proud of the performance by two of our most regular attendees, Niranjan Balachandar and Jeffrey Huang.  Both were selected to participate in the high pressure countdown round by scoring in the top 10 on the written portions of the contest.  As we later found out, Niranjan scored #1 and Jeffrey scored #2 on the written tests.

Both Niranjan and Jeffrey dominated their countdown rounds and came to face each other in the final.  Each won points answering long before the question had been read.  In the end Jeffrey won the last point and became the winner of the countdown round!

Both Niranjan and Jeffrey will now go to the state competition on the Rice and Frankford Middle School teams.  Best of luck to them both in Austin!
